Bella Birthday Hop

Welcome to the Bella Birthday Blog Hop celebrating her 3rd birthday! If you want to start at the beginning, visit Bella's blog today after 9am central. Now on with the party.

We got our first freeze in Austin last night and I can't wait for the winter to end. At least these Bellas are enjoying the sunshine on their birthday.


The Gardenbella is paired with spring colors, flowers and of course some glitter and pearls. What girl can go without them? The sketch is from SCS255 challenge.
Supplies:
  • Stamps: Gardenbella
  • Paper: BasicGrey Lilykate, My Mind's Eye Tres Jolie , gruvy guava & chocolate chip by SU
  • Ink: Momento black, certainly celery by SU, Copics (E53)
  • Accessories: Prima flowers, pink pearls, Stickles, clear button, twine, yellow SU ribbon, green Basic Grey ribbon
The Beachbella is doing even better on the sun and dressed up in the yellow paper pierced bikini and towel. The sketch is from SC254 challenge. I was singing the Yellow Polka Dot Bikini song as I was making this card, so I printed the lyrics on the inside.




Supplies:
  • Stamps: Beachbella
  • Paper: Bordering  from SU, DP from BasicGrey Offbeat collection and Plum Daisy from Chatterbox
  • Ink: Momento black, Bordering blue, Copics (E53, Y21)
  • Accessories: Metal Tag and clips, Prima flower, button, rhinestones
  • Tools: Cuttlebug, punches
Thanks for stopping by my blog and your next stop on the hop is Margie's Blog or you can find the master thread of participants here.
