Crafty Bella

 

Hello,
Today I have a birthday card to share I made for a crafty blog friend. Her birthday was earlier this month so I know I can now share it.

I love using my circle dies, they are my most used dies wether it is just for stamping an image or creating a sketch like this. I think having circles rather than straight lines all the time is nice for a change, plus you can showcase different patterned papers without it getting overwhelming.
I used some studio light papers, even embossed a few to add texture. I added sequins, ribbon and a bow to embellish.
The image is Calissta loves to craft, an uptown girl by stamping bella, coloured with Promarkers. I use this image a lot for crafty friends birthdays.
