Bella Birthday

I made this card for a pharmacist that I work with who's birthday was today. I used the challenge SC209 at SplitCoastStampers. Of course, I am a few weeks behind on the challenge (who would have ever guessed I was behind ??....LOL) I colored her with my new Prismacolor pencils that the mailman delivered to my doorstep on Friday. Thanks Mr. Mailman!
I think she turned out "cupcake yummylicious! :)
And I even sacrificed 3 pattern papers on this card! It was really hard to give that many up to one card, but I managed to convince myself that my paper stash would be fine with out these small pieces of paper! LOL
Stamp: Bella (Cuppacakeabella)
Paper: PaperTrey Textstyle patterned paper, Fresh Prints, Hobby Lobby paper
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Distress Ink antique linen, ColorBox Eggplant
Accessories: Clear embossing, ribbon from Hobby Lobby, Stickles, Nestabilities oval, and Cuttlebug tag

Very cute. I love bella stamps. The prismacolors look great. I can sympathize with the pattern paper hoarding. I hate using mine but have been trying to use more of it.
