Sketchy Bellarific Friday!

Hi everyone! Happy Bellarific Friday!!

Today's Bellarific Friday Challenge is an AWESOME sketch challenge brought to us by the AMAZING Karen! What a FUN sketch...I had a blast with this!!

I started by stamping Partygirlabella from Stamping Bella (I think she may just be my favorite Bella!) in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper and colored her with Copic Markers. I cut around the balloons and then cut out and embossed the image with Circle Nestabilities. I added some Martha Stewart Glitter to all of the balloons.

The patterned paper is from DeLovely by Cosmo Cricket (LOVE this paper...can you believe I just got some?) and I LOVE the bright, fun colors! I used some matching, bright cardstock for the strips on the sketch, Intense Kiwi, Intense Yellow and Vibrant Teal.

I used Classic Magenta for both the card base and to layer my Bella panel. I stamped the sentiment, "put your party hat on!", also from Stamping Bella, directly onto my patterned paper. I finished this one off with three Hot Pink Brads in the top corner.
