Bella the Baker by Michelle Perkett Studios and challenge reminder


My card today has been made using a gorgeous digi image called Bella the Baker by Michelle Perkett Studios. You can find her at Michelle's Etsy shop or at Bunny Zoes Craft online store.
Don't forget the challenge at Michelle Perkett Studios - it's 'anything goes' this week, so as long as you use an MP image, you can create whatever you like!


For my card, I've followed the fab sketch at Cute Card Thursdays. Bella is coloured with Promarkers, then Glossy Accents added to the icing on the cake and the candle. The edges have been inked with Crushed Olive and Forest Moss Distress Inks. The dp is BasicGrey - Sugared, and all the layers are Bazzill dark red card, as is the 6 x 6" card. Other items used are Martha Stewart punches, red gems from stash, a Marianne Creatables die for the flowers, and Stardust Stickles have been applied to the edges of the petals and round the outside edge of the card.


I'm entering my card into these challenges:

Stamp Something August digi day Challenge - I've used a Michelle Perkett digi image.
Stampin' For the Weekend Challenge 45 - Anything Goes
The Character Cafe Feature Friday #29 - Dimensional Glaze - the cake has Glossy Accents on it.
