IPODabella

I was'nt really happy with this card. I had a different version in my head and it didn't come out the way I wanted it to be. I was even debating if I should post it but then again, why not?!?

This sketch was taken from Jen of I {heart} 2 Stamp, which she posted a couple of weeks ago. It's been a while since the last time I played with these girls so just in time to take them out and ink them. I thought I have a Cuttlebug Music Folder and it would be perfect for the background but I have to settle for another CB folder. I saw these music notes brads from Michael's and thought if would be perfect for this Bella and for .99 cents for a pack of 20, I think it's a great deal!

Stamps: Ipodabella from Stamping Bella

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Riding Hood Red and Baja Breeze card stock from Stampin' Up

Ink: Staz-On Jet Black and SU re-inkers

Accessories: Liquid Applique, MS circle cutter, Basic Black gross grain ribbon, CB Swiss Dot folder and Music notes brads
