HAPPY BIRTHDAY STAMPING BELLA!

Welcome to the Bella Birthday Bash Blop Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella. If you just headed over here from Lisa's lovely blog you are on the right track =)
To wish Stamping Bella a HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY I made an easel card using CAKEABELLA and the CELEBRATE definition block is also from Stamping Bella (because today is a big day worth celebrating!) Yes that is SNOW in the background of the picture....over 13 inches fell in about 12 hours! My oldest son was thrilled that he had no school on Friday =)

This is the second easel card I've made and I have to admit ~ they are fun to do ~ not quite as intimidating as I first thought they were =) Although making a 4x4 card was a little challenging...I'm used to have a little bit more room to work with.
I added a little shimmer to the cake using liquid pearls and a spica pen (because Bella needs some sparkle and shine on her cake).

Deets:
Stamps: Cakeabella and Celebrate Definition Block
Cardstock: Bazzill Bling
DP: 3 Bugs in a Rug COCO line
Copics: E00,E99, RV11,E29,B39
Embellisments: Petal pink liquid pearls, ruby red liquid pearls, Smooch accent ink, pink Spica pen, Doodlebug sugar coated brads, misc. flower brad.

And I saved the best for last! =)
Three gift certificates for $100 in Bella Bucks will be hidden along the hop, but we’re not telling you where so be sure to leave some love as you hop!!! Make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! The winners will be announced on Monday, December 7 at the Stamping Bella Blog. MWAH!
Thanks so much for hopping by!
Now it's time to hop on over to the talented Michele's blog and see what she has created!
Have a BELLARIFIC day! =)
