Here Comes Summer!

Hi everyone! Happy Bellarific Friday!!!

Today's Bellarific challenge is "Here Comes Summer"! I had SO much fun making my card!!

When I was a kid, nothing said Summer more than roller skating outside! While I can barely walk without falling (I am not the most coordinated girl around!), I was hot stuff on my skates!!!

I couldn't wait to ink up Rollabella from Stamping Bella! She is SO super cute isn't she? I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar Crest White and colored her with Copic Markers. She was SO fun to color too!!

For the layout, I used this week's Sketch Challenge on SCS, SC283, and it was PERFECT for Rollabella!! The patterned papers are from Fly A Kite by October Afternoon, and I ran the Classic Red panel through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. I sewed all of the layers, added two white brads (can you tell that brads are my most favorite embellishment?) and some red ric rac ribbon (say that five times fast!) and called it done!!!
