Rollabella Beep Beep Card

I just love this Bella because she reminds me of all the time I spent at Skate World as a child.  She's got people to see and places to be!  Of course we didn't have cool iPods back then...we had walkmans, lol.  I use to spend hours recording songs off the radio onto tapes!

I wanted to play a bit more with my felt, so I made these fun matching flowers for my card.  I really like layering the felt with paper.  It doesn't make your flower get too bulky.  And then I hand stitched the buttons on with embroidery floss.

Paper: Basic Grey June Bug
Stamps: Stamping Bella, sentiment is Amuse
Felt, CB Flower Dies, PTI Buttons, Copics, Friskars Border Punch

Everyone have a fabulous hump day! Excited for SYTYCD!

  1. Adorable card! Thanks so much for the idea of the paper with the felt! I have been madly collecting PTI's new felt as it comes out and am not quite sure what to do with it!! Sad, I know, but the colors are so pretty! :-)Traci

  2. Oh the roller skating memories.....for me they were to disco! (I know I'm dating myself!)

    I love all of the sewing you do on your cards, Sparkle. This is a very sweet Bella and I love how you used the felt flowers.

  4. What a fun card! The girls and I met up with some friends at the roller skating rink yesterday. Gotta say, none of the skaters were as cutely decked out as this Bella is, but oh boy, can some of them skate on roller blades. It was super fun. We have passes for the summer, so I'm sure we'll be there a few more times before school starts. LOL

    The felt and paper flowers look fantastic!

  6. What a darling card. I also used to spend a lot of time at our skating rink in town when I was young. It was a cool place to go.

    And I totally hear you about the walkman. :)

  7. Fun card! Love that "beep beep" sentiment and those flowers are just adorable with that paper!! I just loved skating when I was younger and like you, I would record songs off the radio and listen to them on my walkman while skating around my neighborhood. Thanks for the memories!
