Pop Up Bella

Seems like every time I turn around I have a birthday to make a card for!!! ISN'T LIFE GREAT!!! Ha ha ha I love it! I want more friends so that I have even more cards to make!!! It's just an excuse to be in my space making cards.
This one is my most recent Bella card. I made her with Presentabella. I love her so much because you can use her for SOOO many different things... Birthday, thanks, mother's day, anything that gets presents... I mean it worked welll for Christmas and for almost any holiday!
I used Soft Sky for the first time with this card, and I used some Wintergreen Patterned paper and Chocolate Chip. There are accents of Certainly Celery too....

Her dress is paper pieced... which I admit I am not very good at but it turned out okay on this particular one. I colored the dots in with some gel-pens.

The stripes and the dots were a little tooo busy for my taste so I covered the present with the same background paper. I think it turned out cute. and the "Ribbon" on the package was colored with gel-pens again and stuck on seperate than the rest. A scalloped circle and several circles add the final touch of the sentiment.

I made this so that it would pop up... when she opened it up there was her name that popped up out of the center of the card... I tried to take a picture but it turned out quite blurry. (I will be so glad when my scanner is up and running again!) Here is that picture, and on the back when it is open the people that see the back have this little pannel that pops up also... "I'm 35 years OLD"

Ohh, She is too cute. I love the pop-up idea on the inside. She might just have to be in my next order.

hey girl, are we still on for you to do Mania at Archiver's on the
23rd, so we can meet in person? I know there are spots left but they are filling up so you might want to call if you are still planning on it. If not we can look for another date.

MWAH Sistah,
