Bella Birthday...

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. -Edith Wharton
It's Friday! Today I am doubling up for Blogger's Challenge and Bellarific Friday! I used the Wonderful sketch Shannan made for this week and Flowahbella to make my Birthday card (the Blogger's Challenge this week was Birthday cards.)

I used lots of the Yummy June Bug paper for this one...I just Love this flowery paper, it has just a touch of an Asian flair. I colored the image with Reinkers and a Niji Waterbrush as it was an image I recieved from a fellow stamper and I'm not sure what ink it was stamped with...I didn't want to risk Copic Bleed!

I used Elzybells Swirly Greetings for the inside, as well as the flowers from Surf's Up stamped in Versamark...

Supplies:
Stamps: Flowahbella (Stamping Bella,) Swirly Greetings, Surf's Up (Elzybells)
Paper: Whie CS, Textured Card (DCWV,) June Bug (Basic Grey,) Berry Sorbet (PTI)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento,) Reinkers in Bashful Blue, Rose Red, Cranberry Crisp, Aricot Appeal, Mellow Moss (SU)
Misc: Stardust Stickles, CTMH White Grosgrain (colored with a Copic Marker,) Dots of Pearls (Colored with a Copic Marker)


Thanks for stopping by!
