Birthday Boy

Funny we actually have a birthday boy in our family today - my nephew (who is in law school!!) I really must get a card in the mail for him!!

This weeks bellariffic Fridays theme was paper piercing or sewing, I went with paper piercing. I used Mercy's sketch from this week (MTSC92) for my card & inked up one of my long neglected tiddly ink designs - the Birthday Boy from Stamping Bella.  The image is stamped with mementos ink onto bella's bestest paper and coloured with copics.  I used a clear glaze pen on some of the ribbon and his party hat.  I also paper pieced the party hat and the present he is holding.  The ds paper is from Imaginisce called b-day bash (how fitting!!) Instead of a scallop I added a chain border which I punched with EK successes chain link punch.

Did you see that Em had a surprise release this week?!  Yep no more big releases just when she has the new rubbah in she will release it so you'll have to keep an eye on her blog!  Next week Bellariffic Fridays theme is very scary - HALLOWEEN!!!  Email Em your cards by Thursday to be included and you may win bella bucks; which will come in handy when there are surprise releases!!

Don't forget to stop by Bloggabella to see the rest of the babes & sistah's creations & thanks for stopping by

Cute! I like the embossing folder - is that new? Also, the chain link punch is perfect for those manly/boy cards!
