Bella is ready to party again!!!

This card is for one of the young girls at work that is turning 21 (legal drinking age in Arizona)so made her this card. My BBGF Marge makes a lot of cards with the cut out like this..so fun!! this is the first time I am trying it. worked perfect to fit in the #21. Don't you just love it when you really get your moneys worth out of a stamp??? Well this one is it!!!!! Those of you that have visited my blogg in the past will know how often I have used this cosmo Bella!
Things I played with from my stash:
Cosmo Bella stamp. All paper & ink is from Stampin up. Colored bella with prismacolor pencils & markers. The Happy birthday stamp is from Clear arstic stamps. I am just in love with Stampin up's new scallop border punch! (top of the card) Ribbon is from Michaels craft store.
Thanks for visiting today!

This is fantastic...and very inspiring...as I have a daughter that will be 21 in six days!!!

Wow, Gwen; you're sooooo clever to turn that punch-out to the side; PERFECT! Love also how you always do the layers; my brain isn't 2 or 3-dimensional enough, I guess! Your coloring is always fantastic. This card totally rocks & she'll LOVE it!!! Darn, now I want that SU scallop punch too - grrrr!

Deb Neerman said...

Love this!!! I must try your punch-out technique .... maybe you'll do a tutorial?!?

TFS; and thanks for visiting my blog, too!

You rock!

OMG Gwen! I am so happy I decided to come see my new SBS sistah! Your blog is awesome and this card is gawgous! I don't have any Bella's yet (I've only been stamping about 6 months) but I need one now!
Love it!

Very pretty card. Ohhhhhhhhh to be 21 again (knowing what I know now!)
The punching is very different- need to try that too. I just love your blog and all of your cards are very different - not the same card in another color.
