Carte-licious 3

 Stamps: Veggiebella, "ha-pea birthday", Borders & Corners Square (PaperTrey Ink) Card Stock: Bashful Blue, Homespun Collection (Memory Box), Very Vanilla Ink: Black, Stampin' Write Markers, Certainly Celery Accessories: Punches--Large Oval, Ticket Corner, Fiskars Mini Scallop Paper Edgers, 5/8 inch Real Red grosgrain ribbon,


It's time for Carte-licious take 3! This time Melissa sent the adorable Veggiebella image and sentiment. She even sent extras, and some cute Fluffles images. Thanks so much Melissa! Be sure to check out Melissa's take on the challenge, as well as Joan's and Sue's. I can hardly wait to see them all myself! My card uses a Bashful Blue base, and Homespun Collection designer paper by Memory Box. The image is stamped with Black on Very Vanilla, and colored with my Stampin' Write markers. I gave the larger areas a light wash with my Aqua Painter. The sentiment was punched out with my Large Oval punch, and matted with Bashful Blue (trimmed with my Fiskars mini scallop paper edgers). The corners of the image piece are stamped with an image from Borders & Corners Square PaperTrey Ink set. I used the Ticket Corner punch for the Homespun layer, and decorated with Adornit Gems (found at Eclectic Paperie). The ribbon is 5/8 inch Real Red from SU. Thank you for visiting today, and don't forget to check out the other Carte-licious challenge cards.

Hi Rose Ann, love this Bella card so much! I have a question for you, how do you decide when to use your SU markers versus Copics? What is the differernce in the results? I am learning as much as I can! Thanks! Deb

I love the little flourishes in the corners. And you must tie the most perfect knots I've seen. It's so pretty.
