PMSabella ~ a.k.a. ~ Ericabella!!!!


I just love this little Bella. She reminds me of myself. It doesn't have to be a PMS day to stuff myself full of junk (particularly sweets)! I am definately a junk food junkie! The colors I chose for this are a little off the wall, but I kind of like them together. Yesterday's SCS challenge was to use Orchid Opulence. I never use that color, and since I wasn't able to do the challenge yesterday I just incorperated it into today's card. So here's the scoop- I used white for my card base. I shortened my card front on the right side a little and scalloped it. I used the Polka Dots & Petals set for the background on the card with Real Red & Orchid Opulence. For the inside of the card I put a strip of the O.O on the right side and stamped the sentiment "take time for yourself", and I put white gel pen dots around the scallops. Second to stamping- eating junk is how I take time for myself!! Okay- then I stamped (we'll call her Ericabella) her on white cardstock and colored her in with watercolor crayons. I flocked her socks so they are fuzzy and I put dazzling diamonds glitter on her shirt. I layered her on O.O. and R.R and I made the red slightly longer on the right side to allow for me to poke holes with the paper piecer. I put Ericaballa and layers on dimensionals and there you have it!!

I think she is the perfect example of what a stampinggirl is. I think she fits all of us to a T, especially this week. Love the card and I love the color combo. Great job Er!!!
