Bellariffic Birthday Wishes

Happy Friday - this week the bellariffic Friday challenge was to make a birthday card, which was perfect because I always seem to be behind on getting them made & sent!

I used this weeks Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO123) as my inspiration and inked up one of my new bella's - "all boxed up a bella". The image is stamped on bella's bestest cream paper and coloured with copics. The DS paper is from October afternoons Cherry hill collection called Cookie Jar (the stripes) and Recipe box. I added some kiwi ribbon and for the prima flower I sprayed a white flower with pumpkin Tattered Angels Glimmer mist. I love the look of the glimmer mist, but was worried about a mess so I kept a boot box with a flip top lid (sturdy sorels what every Canadian gal needs!) and spray in the box lined with paper towel. Once you have sprayed the flower press it into the paper towel to soak up any extra then just put the box away; no clean up required!! I added a bella bonbon to the flower and the buttons are from my collection.

Make sure you stop by Bloggabella later today to see all the birthday cards & make sure you leave Em a comment!

Next weeks Bellariffic Friday is a sketch designed by the FABULOUS Shannanabella - make sure you have your cards emailed to Em by midnight on Thursday Feb 4th!

Have a great day

Dana
