Happy Happy FlowaBella

FlowaBella makes this sista Happy Happy! In keeping with my springy mood of late (no thanks to uncooperative weather with spitting snow flurries today!), I had some fun with my girlfriend Bella. Two Scoops paper by Basic Gray has been sitting on my shelf for way too long, and it was calling Bella's name! I had fun choosing the bright and cheery papers to match Bella's springy attitude and her wirey hair. That's the very reason I chose to include ric-rac on my flower/button embellishment - because I think it looks much like Bella's hair! LOL

All Bella's were stamped in SU Chocolate Brown ink, colored with copics, cut and embossed with Spellbinders Long Classic Rectangles, and then stippled with a pale yellow background while still in the die. I am love love loving having these pre-made button embellishments on hand. They really get my mojo in gear!

Notice Bella's polka dot skirt? After I colored with copics, I held a 0-colorless copic marker in place at various points to wash out the color, thus creating dots. Go copic markers!

Inside card, with matching DP and sentiment. Card base is Kraft, my latest new love. I dream in Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue, but lately Kraft has been making guest appearances!

Matching Flowa envelopes for FlowaBella! Okay, so have you seen the new Bella release? Meet Ketto ... she's coming to my mailbox soon! Who can resist a girlfriend with cute wirey hair?
