Ooops, but better late than never - it's Bellarific Friday!

(Please scroll down for my There She Goes new release post!)


I am such a doughnut.  I had my card already for today's Bellarific Friday but I forgot to photograph it or even write this post for it!  Thank goodness Em sent me a sweet reminder!  So, without further ado, here is my Bellarific Babe card and this week the theme was BLING!


Okay, I hear you saying "where's the bling?" but it is there!  I don't use a lot of glitter usually but I did dot a lot of Glamour Dust on the umbrella, her clothes trim and the flowers - if you don't believe me, take a closer look here...


Yes, well, it's still not showing up well on this one either!  Hey ho, you'll just have to take my word for it!  I used Uptown Couple Emily and Ryan Under the Umbrella - don't cha just love that soppy sentiment that comes with it?  I matched them up with the Crate Paper Brook collection and used my Quickutz polka dot embossing folder.  I'm entering my card into the Simon Says anything goes challenge.

So next week we have the fabby sketch to follow.  Email your creations to Em by next Thursday 25 April for a chance to win $20 Bella Bucks (either by submitting a project or simply commenting on next week's Bellarific Friday post)!


Right, I am off but I will see you later on my bloground!
