My First Bella Card


At long last I've created a Bella card! I love Bella stamps, they're contemporary and cute at the same time! For this card I used a sketch template from the fantastic My Paper World blog which I visit everyday! I used some DCWV textured card in orange and yellow and doodled round them with a black pen. I then mounted Bella onto black card and coloured in with glimmer chalks. I then used my Bazzil Stitch'z template and floss to hand sew a zig-zag pattern. I finally added a 'thinking of you' message which wasn't part of the sketch but I see it as an addition rather than a cheat!
Thanks for looking, until tomorrow xxx
