And today is also Bellarific Friday and this week's theme was to use banners.  So here is my card using one of the new Uptown Girls called Sunny is Stylish...



Isn't she fabulicious?!  I can just imagine that's off to sunnier climes - St Lucia or the Maldives perhaps!   I matched her up with Karen Funk So Happy Together digi papers, a Crafts Too polka dot embossing folder and Little Miss Muffet party banner die.   I am entering my card into the Simon Says Stamp anything goes challenge.

I paper pieced her outside and then shaded them with my Copics.  I added some Stickles Glue in Star Dust on her clothes trim and hearts and some Glossy Accents to her glasses.  Here's a closer look...


The new Bellarific Friday is the sketch below to follow.  Email your creations to Em by next Thursday 7 March for a chance to win $20 Bella Bucks (either by submitting a project or simply commenting on next week's Bellarific Friday post)!

Good day dear Mary,

Again a stunning card.
I love the flags with the little green flower buttons.
The image is awesome.
Just like the sentiment.
Specially when it's still cold,windy in the Netherlands.
Can't wait to have that big sunglasses on my nose in the summer.
How fun to see the flowers of the skirt comes back on the paper.

Have a wonderful day!
