Stamping Bella Challenge

Well I entered my very first challenge over at Stamping Bella. Linda came up with a really fun sketch challenge so I had to try it. You should check out the rest of the amazing cards that were submitted - there's so many!!

My background circle could be a lot more prominent, but it just got lost with everything I piled on top & probably the colour choice as well. I love this Presentabella image and tried to add some motion to it by adding small Bella Dots.
Overall I think I went a bit "dotty". The background DP is full of circles/dots... as is the ribbon... as is the swiss cheese edge punch I used on the Whisper White c/s. I couldn't see straight when I was finished. 8)

Oh wow, Carla, this is such a fun card!!!! The circles go so very well with that Bella. I have only a few of the Bella's and barely use them. I might just dust them off and give it a go ;P. Hugs and have a great weekend, Sabrina

Hi Carla, thanks for visiting my blog, and of course you can add a link! I just started following your blog.
Your cards are gorgeous. I had a good giggle at the shoe box which has become a whole room, that's probably the same for all of us!
