If friends were flowers...

Hallo! Well I stand corrected on my last post about the weather!! Yep, it is lovely and sunny and warm!! UK weather can be bizarre at times!!

Just a quick birthday card post for you today...

Here is "contenttobeabella". I've coloured her with my usual mediums and paper pieced her top and the flower. I added glitter to the flower in her hair and sponged pastel pink ink around her whilst in the circle nestie. Papers are by Basic Grey- Hello Luscious- one of my fav BG pads of all time! Sentiment is also by Stamping Bella. I've raised up the central image using 3d foam pads.

I'd like to enter this into:
Stamping Bella- use pop dots
Belli Challenge- paper piecing
Simon Says- anything goes
Kaboodle- layers
Sweet Stampin Challenges- anything goes
Dutch Dare- bingo- Paper piecing/flowers (in image)/bling (glitter and nailheads)

Usual close up!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Stamping Bella); Lyra & watercolour pencils; Copics; Nesties; Papers (Basic Grey); Assorted cardstock; Stickles; Nailheads (Josy Rose)
