Cuppacakeabella

I dare you to say that three times straight...LOL!

My sister asked me to make her a card for her friend, Leyla. (Belated Happy Birthday, Leyla!). And can you believe that she's never been inked before (I'm talking about my stamp not Leyla...LOL!).

My Bella's are really not happy with me lately and they were glad that my sister asked for a Bella card. They think I've been ignoring them but they just don't understand that I work full-time and by the time I get home from work, I still have to cook and help my daughter with her homework. If only we have more than 24 hours a day, I'll be playing with them more...LOL!

Cuppacakeabella was stamped on Whisper White card stock, colored with Prisma water color and layered with Green Galore card stock. I had these pink prima flowers and I thought that they are perfect for this card. The icing and the dots on her dress was covered with stickles.

She is gorgeous!!! I love pink and green together. One of my fav color combos. Too pretty!!! she will love it for sure!

Carolyn Bounds said...

I am sure your Bellas will forgive you:o) You know, even if there were more than 24-hours in a day...we still wouldn't have enough time. The work week would change to accomodate the longer hours, and we would have to cook more meals:o}

I know Leyla loved the card, but I don't think she wants to be inked again:O) I love your color palette, and the cupcake looks yummers!!!

I hope you enjoy your weekend!!!

Hugs!
Carolyn
