Today's Bella (brought to you by the Sketch that wasn't!)

Stamps: Cuppacakeabella
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Sahara Sand, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White
Ink: White Craft, Memento Black
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, Pink Shimmerz, Cuttlebug Spots & Dots Folder, Word Window Punch

I really wanted to participate in the sketch challenge over at Stamping Bella this week, but once I got excited about using my new Cuppacakeabella, having stamped & colored her, I realized I was doing the sketch upside down. By the time all was said & done, I decided it was just too different from the sketch to enter it =)

But she's still pretty sweet, so I've decided you can let me know what you think....too far off the sketch or would she have still qualified?!

This card was a first attempt in my new light box...what do you think? Needs more lights, but I think it's heading in the right direction.

At any rate, have a Bellarific Friday! Don't forget to stop by that new digi company, Digital-Ink Co. for a digital freebie and 35% off this week. Because who doesn't love freebies!?!


  1. Tanny, all the elements are there and it is such a darling card. The only tweaking I see is that you turned the sketch and widened the space between two of the panels -- I think it is just creative license! I would go ahead and entered the card. It is just too wonderful not too!

  2. Yup, I think it qualifies too. It's more same than different and the card is really cute!

  3. I think it would count for the sketch because all you did was rotate it...I've seen many, many people do the same for sketch challenges. I always admire them for thinking outside the box :) Love Bella :) The photo looks great but I need to see more to see if there's any difference...I need one of those too as the days are getting shorter.... :( We caught 6 fish yesterday :) still ate the lasagna with a fish as it was delicious LOL

  4. Qualified! you can see the sketch and that's all thats needed...doesnt make any difference if its turned or long as you see it!
    (in my opinion) LOL if not, then I guess I've been bumped out of many a challenge :)

    Your card is ADORABLE!!!

  5. I think it's awesome. Doing the sketch flip flopped is ok I think! I've done came out wonderful!

  6. I think it turned out great! I would enter it! It looks the same just flipped! Great job!
