A Cupcakeabella Thank You & Bella Color Challenge #25...

Woohoo...Friday is here and I am soooo glad!!! :D This week has just been super busy for me at work and home. I have been trying to find a dress for my company party this Saturday...luckily I found one. Our company is celebrating it's 20th Anniversary so we are having a dinner and Casino night...should be fun!!! :D My internet has been down at home for a while and I can't stand it. I hope it gets fixed soon b/c I want to post more this weekend. And your probably wondering if my internet is down how am I posting? Well...I got to work a little early so I am posting this real quick (shhh!) LOL!!! :D Well enough about me...let's get to my card. This card is for the Bella Color Challenge that Sparkle does. Check it out if you want to play!!! :D

The colors to use for this color challenge were Cranberry & Amethyst. I got this new Bella from Laurel for a RAK challenge she was having...so a great BIG THANKS goes out to her for this one!!! This card is a standard 4 1/4 x 11 piece of White Daisy CS folded in half. I used all CTMH CS for this card. I didn't have any cute dp to use so I used my infamous new Spot on Backgrounds stamp (love it) for the Amethyst CS. And I also used it to paper piece my cupcake liner. I also used another background for Bella's paper pieced dress (gotta love paper piecing)!!!! I used liquid applique for the cupcake frosting and used a red sparkle for the cherry. I added some brads, a prima & some twill I was done!!! Great color challenge as usual Sparkle...now I just need to finish Marjorie's color challenge so stay tuned!!! :D


Stamps: Cupcakeabella (Stamping Bella), Say It With Style & Spot on Backgrounds (CTMH) Paper: White Daisy, Amethyst, & Cranberry CS (CTMH) Ink: Amethyst & Cranberry (CTMH) Accents: White Daisy Brads, Clear Button, Colonial White Waxy Flax & Red Sparkle (CTMH), White Twill Ribbon (Martha Stewart), Prima Flower, Liquid Applique


Have a Fabulous Day!!!

Okay, seriously this has got to be the best card I've seen with this Bella! The color combo is yummy; the flower with the button in the middle and the ribbon treatment - love it; the paper pieced dress so cute; the spot on background came out wonderful; the liquid applique, so cool on cupcakes and the brads are just the perfect touch! Thanks for sharing such a little gem with us!
Hope you have a wonderful time at your party on Saturday - sounds like it'll be a blast!
