Polka Dotted Bellarific Friday


Can you feel the excitement in the air? The anticipation of the BIG day? OK, well maybe it's just on my end.... I'm excited because it's my first Bellarific Friday as a Bella Babe! :) Yahoo! Today's challenge was to use polka dots in your creation, so I think I accomplished that in a nice balance... I was afraid of going overboard in my excitement!

I've said it before and I'll say it again... Mavis is my favorite of all the Stamping Bella images! I just love her sweet lil' kitty cat face! So Swingin' Mavis in her polka dot dress was my natural choice for today's card. She is stamped on Bella's Bestest cardstock and colored with Copic markers. And my new "Emma's Shoppe" Crate Paper (one piece with a few more polka dots) has become my go-to paper lately. I added more polka dots with the embossed background, and the pink ribbon.
Be sure to stop over at Blogabella to see all the other fabulous entries for today's challenge! And join us next Friday when our theme will be monochromatic cards! All you have to is create a card using stamps from Stamping Bella in a monochromatic design (different shades of the same color), and email it to Emily by Thursday evening to be included in the Bella-licious line-up next week!

Happy stamping!
