Bella's having Fun in the Sun!

It's Wednesday again, so for me that means another sketch challenge to play with, here is the one I did for today. Sure wish I had a figure like that but it will never happen, I guess my daughters do. That was part of the reason I purchased the bella stamps (but how could I resist them) some of them do remind me of my daughters - that was pretty sneaky of Emily doing that LOL.

Today's card would have been made sooner, I stamped and colored her twice on the white panel, only to take the lid of a blue tria pen I had reinked a little too much last week and discover a blue dot near the sand area - arghhhhhhhhhhh
don't you just hate when something like that happens. Anyway I put the lid back on and removed it from where I was stamping so third time lucky! I used my tiny mosaic cuttlebug embossing folder for the green layer as it reminded me of the checks in Bella's basket.

I didn't want the ribbon to go across Bella's feet and hide them so I cut a slit on one side and put the ribbon under the main panel.

Recipe:
Stamps: Beach Bella - Stamping Bella; Sand - Darcies; Sun - Posh
Paper: White; Black; Lime; Aqua; Tropical Striped Paper
Other: Black Ink; Yellow Citrus Fluid Chalk; Tiny Mosaic Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; Slider Cuttlebug Die; Sizzix Circles Die; Pink Grosgrain Ribbon; orange brads
