Bellariffic Friday!!

Happy Friday everyone!  It's time once again for Bellariffic Friday and here is the sketch for today:

Had fun with this one - although got stumped with the horizontal strip and decided to just leave it off.  Loved the sketch though - it encouraged lots of layers, which I love to do.  So here's my card:

I used one of the new Amariah Rauscher stamps from Stamping BellaRamona & Teddy in their balloon.  OMG - I luvvvvs these sweet sweet Rauscher stamps and am slowly collecting every single one!  

I've propped up the center image as well as the clouds... and I've also added the first line of the Dr. Suess sentiment on the front of the card to follow along with the sketch.  Cool paper, eh?!!  It's from Destinations "Travelogue".  I was hoarding it for just this occasion.  8)

And here on the inside I've stamped the sentiment completely and also lightly stamped the image again with SU Mellow Moss ink.  Couldn't resist also adding a bit more of the Destinations paper as well.  Isn't she a cutie??   Hope you were able to particpate in today's challenge, but if not, don't forget to place a comment here on Bloggabella today while you're checking out all of today's challenge cards... for a chance to win $10 in Bella Bucks!!

I'm a new follower of your blog. This is a beautifully designed card, and I adore these stamps from Stamping Bella. I like the sentiments used as well. Nicely colored.

I too love the Ramona line of stamps. And this card is beautiful! I love how you added the clouds - they create the perfect scene to this image. And your colors are so warm and inviting!

Another sensational card, Carla. You've perfectly coordinated your colours with that DP. That colouring! Oh my - that colouring is so very beautiful. Love the little popped up clouds too.

Gorgeous inside and out! I love your blog for many reasons....the cards, the large print (thanks!), your gorgeous photos of the details on your cards. Thank you for sharing!!

Carla another fantastic card. I know the sketch initiates layers, but you always add the extra's like the edge dies, and those clouds, it just sets the card off. Wonderful colouring and love the colours you used, that paper is perfect for Ramona in her travels!
