Bellarific Friday - Beauty Queen

Today is week two of the Stamping Bella challenge to search for a new Bella Babe. I've never attempted to try to become a design team member before, but I thought it would be fun to participate in all the challenges for August (as required) and see what happens. As I said in my post last week - no biggie if I don't get it. I like participating in challenges and this week's challenge was "BLING"!!!

So I looked through my Stamping Bella stamps and decided to go with Maisy Ketto because she's wearing that beautiful crown! I knew I could bling that up pretty well :)

Ms. Maisy is colored with prisma pencils and gamsol on Bella's Bestest Paper (yum!). I used Martha Stewart silver glitter for her wings and gold glitter for her crown. Then topped the crown with rhinestones (but don't tell her because she thinks they are diamonds!)   I colored a dew drop with my sharpie and added it to the center of the flower.

The paper I used is from DCWV and it has a bunch of glitter on it already.  I used my new EK Success border scallop punch and my Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder.  I used a few flower punches and an MFT sentiment.

I based my layout on the Card Patterns Sketch # 76.  It's not 100% to the sketch - but I'd give it about an 85%!!!

So, that's my card for the week two challenge. Make sure to stop by the Bloggabella and see all the AWESOME entries...........these ladies are turning it OUT for this Bella Babe spot!!

And YUM! Here's my Greek cucumber salad that we had last night. If you want the recipe, go HERE

TGIF!!!  Thanks for stopping by!!! Have a great weekend!!

The scallops coordinate nicely with the flowers in the patterned paper. I think you definitely "blinged" her out, lol! :)
