Fun Monday!!

Good morning everyone! I'm back today as a stop on the Bella Digi Studio Blog Hop! If you're just joining in, please click HERE to start at the beginning. And, please be sure to read the instructions so you know how to play along to be eligible for blog candy and next week's Guest Designer spot!

I shared a sneak peek with you yesterday of my card for the hop. It was also a peek into the challenge for this week. This week I challenge you to create a card and make your SENTIMENT the focus of the card. Take a look at my full card...

I printed the sentiment from the new Celebrations Sentiment Pack then trimmed it down, punched the edges with my SU! Ticket Punch then tied off some SU! twine. To make the card base, I used my Big Shot Pro A6 Scallop Card die then cut the oval out using my Spellbinders Oval Nestabilities. Under the sentiment is a strip of crepe streamer paper that I airbrushed with my Copics then added hints of sparkle with my Copic Spica Glitter Pens. Now take a look at the inside of the card...

The cake is from the Birthday Party Set. I colored it with my Copics then masked it with the oval cut from the card front and airbrushed the scalloped edge. I added a bit of sparkle to the cake with my Spica Glitter Pens.

Thanks for joining us on the hop today! Next on the hop is Michelle! Please don't forget to leave the girls a little love when you visit and if you haven't already join the rest of the followers so you never miss out!

And don't forget to look for that special blinkie at the TOP OF THE SIDEBAR...hint, hint, clue, clue!! hehehe

Thanks for stoppin' by today! I'm taking tomorrow off but will be back on Wednesday with some more crafty fun! Hope to see you then!
