Stamping Bella Challenge

Well there's my interpretation of the Stamping Bella Challenge. This week the challenge looked like this: I had a lot of fun with it. When I first saw the picture I immediately thought of my little Bella Animals. Each one would have it's own little glass enclosed cage. I glittered the spots on the Spotted Giraffe, highlighted the Daisy Hippo with glitter,and added glitter to the belly and feet of the little Bunny. My Daisy Lion was the funnest. When I bought this little guy from Stamping Bella I had envisioned Flowersoft around his little face. So it was fun to see what it would turn out like. I really like it. I then cut some acetate to fit the squared off area of the card and mounted it with a piece of green cardstock that I used my nestabilities to cut out the squares. I raised the outer glass like piece with foam dots to give it some height. I used Stazon Black ink to stamp the sentiment "Never Grow Up" from Stamping Bella onto the acetate. I then decided to try my hand at finishing the inside. I think it looks okay. Well enjoy.

Congrats on your candy blog win :) This card with the lion is so cute with dimensional flowers.

I saw your a pretty card entry you had for the sugar bowl! I love the colors and the papers. I had fun playing the Sugar bowl as well.

I think you should definitely give it a try at Midnight Madness Sketch, your cards have beautiful color, and not to mention up to $500 prize they are giving, each week's entry is one more chance at the pot.
Please take a look,
Best ~Jeni
