Bellarific Friday!!! I'm back :)

Horray!!!!  I actually had time this week to participate in the Bellarific Friday Challenge of paper piecing!!
It's been QUITE A FEW WEEKS since I was able to submit a card.  After looking through my Stamping Bella images....I actually don't own a lot that can be paper pieced.

I had to go with this baby image, even though I don't even need a baby card.  So, this card is FOR SALE if anyone out there is interested!!


I've had this stash of Memory Box paper for a long while after receiving it as a freebie at my local stamp store.  I love it...but it was way in the back of my stock. I'm so  happy I used it for this card.   After gluing the paper down, I colored in some shadowing with my prisma pencils.

I also used a great reminder tip from Susan at Simplicity about coloring your clear gems with Sharpies.  I have a bunch of Sharpies, so this worked perfectly to match my card.

I used the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club sketch #23 for my layout, which was perfect since I had already cut the image out using my Nesties oval :)


Hope your Friday goes well and you're looking forward to a great weekend!!!  We are grilling pizza tonight.........and yes...........a Nutella/banana pizza is on the menu for dessert!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for your visit!

OMGoodness! This is SO beautiful, Maria! I just love, love, love all the papers and layering. The embossing and the scalloped edging add so much visual texture, and I absolutely adore that sweet image. Fabulous paper piecing.
