Round and Round we go....


.... it's BELLARIFIC FRIDAY don'tcha know? LOL!

Hey hens!! What did I tell ya? Ain't it CUUUUUTE?? I was SO worried about making a circle card... YIKES!! But actually, it came together quite easy! Whew!! Love it when that happens!!

For my card today, I decided to use this cute little image called "Cuppycake with a Huggabugg on top" from Stamping Bella. I stamped her onto some of Bella's Bestest Paper and colored her with my Copics. I cut her out with my Nesties and sponged some distress ink around the edges. I paper pieced her dress using this sweet DP from an old SU paper pack I had. I just love the deep browns in this pack and it goes perfectly with the new SU Early Expresso too! Now, to make those sprinkles (aka: jimmies) show up, I added some orange Stickles on top. They look so sparkly IRL! Ok, to make the card base, the SU Early Expresso CS was first folded in half and then cut leaving the fold slightly inside of the Nestie die, so when the cut is made, this portion of the circle is not cut and becomes the fold of the card. Using the DP, I cut a scalloped circle slightly bigger than the SU Early Expresso CS and adhered it to the back of the CS. A smaller circle cut from the same DP, was then adhered on top of the SU Early Expresso circle. The sentiment was printed and cut out with my SU tag punch and attached with a small brad. Last but not least, I adhered the stamped image using a few SU dimensionals and finished with a bubbly bow on the fold. Not bad huh? Oooooh, I just WUV it!!
