Bellarific Friday - Anywhere But Here......

Wow - I emailed this to Emily at Stamping Bella under the wire again on Thursday at 6:30pm EST.  Hopefully it gave her enough time to set up her Friday Bellarific blog post, but if my card doesn't make it - no biggie....my goal of participating in every Bellarific Friday challenge is still going strong except for one blip back in February.

Onto today's card........since I was short on time....I had to once again - keep it pretty simple. I scanned my pre-stamped images and thought this kitty would take the shortest amount of coloring time (umm, still took me an hour!!).

I had to take the picture outside at my front door because the lighting in my room at that late hour was not good at all (please ignore the dust and debris on the door sill).

So, the image is colored with prisma pencils.  I ended up cutting each piece out and popping them up on the blue layer because that meant less coloring! (remember - time crunch!).  I embossed the background and used a MFT sentiment.  Not sure what I'll use this card for........but.....I liked the sentiment with the image.

Wishing you a happy Good Friday! Assuming you are off from work (if you work)...hope you have a great day wherever you are and whatever you are doing!!

Thanks for your visit!

Great card, love the colors and the image, reminds me of my cat when she got stuck in a bag, well she thought she was :) I was thinking how clean your front door sill was, what dust???? Have a wonderful weekend.

What a great card, Maria! I never would have known that you were under a time crunch if you hadn't told me. My DH always knows when I say "twenty more minutes to finish this card" that usually means at least an hour.

I love that embossed background and how you tied the ribbon so it looked like you planned to leave the unembossed strip (or maybe you did plan it, in which case, bravo!).
