Allboxedupabella Card and Raise the Bar Challenge #2 - The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Eeek...did you see the sneak peeks of the new Basic Grey paper?!? There's 5 new sets coming out this weekend at CHA! Glad I'm using up all my old paper so I can stock up on these, lol.

I just kept going and going with this card...and now I don't know if I even really like it, lol. The challenge this week for Raise the Bar is to use something that was gifted to you. We had over 70 entries on our debut last week so thanks to everyone for playing with us! I think my Bella gets lost in all the bling...but I think it's still a fun and festive card somewhat.

Paper: Basic Grey Origins
Stamps: Stamping Bella, sentiment is Amuse, flourishes are CTMH
Rhinestones, Copics, PTI Ribbon, PTI Buttons, Twine, Crystal Stickles, and Nestabilities


I hope you all have a great Saturday. Both of my BILs and their SOs are staying at our house tonight. We're going to the junior team hockey game - Seattle versus Portland. We've been rival for decades...and since we're really Portland-ers, we're rooting for the Winter Hawks!

  3. What a fun idea to use the rhinestones along the edge of the flourishes to give them more pizazz.

  5. Sparkle, this is gorgeous, those papers are so yummy, love the distressed edges too. I don't think Bella gets lost, the heart shape really draws your eye to the image, i think it works beautifully.
