Catching Up on Bella Challenges

Thankfully, the stomach bug has finally left our house, so I can get back to crafting and blogging. Yay! 

I finally had some time to catch up on the SCS Bella challenges. First up is BCC65. I used the sketch for SCS MFTSC08.
Stamps: Leaning Tower of Stella by Jan Dolby for Stamping Bella
Paper: CTMH Baby Pink, Clover Meadow, Blush, and Ocean
Accessories: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Bella's Dots in Glitter Poppy, Stickles in Cotton Candy, Taylored Expressions Ribbon

BCC66 is next. I borrowed this sketch from SSC MFTSC41. I just love this HuggABugg line of stamps!
Stamps: BedbuGG HuggABugg by Tiddly Inks for Stamping Bella; sentiment by Stamping Bella
Paper: CTMH Sorbet, Topiary, Autumn Terracotta, and Indian Corn Blue
Accessories: Nestabilities, CTMH Edge Distresser, CTMH Paper Piercer, CTMH Buttons, 3-D Dots, Greenhouse Flowers

This card is for BSC67. I made it for a dear friend's anniversary. (Happy 22nd Kristy and Brad!) This is my new favorite paper pack!
Stamps: Jugglabella and sentiment by Stamping Bella
Paper: CTMH That's Amore
Accessories: SU Word Window Punch, Bella's Dots in Glitter Dark Cocoa, Prima Flowers

This card is for BCC67 and BSC68. This was a great pair of challenges! Hope gave us an "inspiration" color challenge: she posted two photos, one of chocolates and one of shoes and a purse, and the challenge was to make a card inspired by those photos. To me, this spelled frilly and romantic. I was still mulling it around in my head when I saw Jamie's sketch challenge. I knew they would work perfectly in combination for a special card for my brother's 20th anniversary. (Happy 20th, Dave and Kristin!) Inside, the sentiment says "Love is in the air."

Accessories: Bella's Dots in Glitter Poppy, SU Ticket Corner Punch, Velvet Ribbon, 3-D Dots, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder

Here's the funny part: after I finished these cards, I put on my new reading glasses and realized that I had colored out of some of the lines. Guess that's why I needed glasses 4 prescriptions stronger than my old ones! LOL
