Million Dollar Bella

I was in a bella mood today, so I thought I'd use one of the images of Elizabella that I colored while I was out of town a few weeks ago.

I think she's my new favorite bella...but then again, I have a new favorite every week. I wouldn't want my other bellas to feel unloved, you know. That just wouldn't be right. =)

The scalloped mat behind her was created using two Marvy giga scalloped square punches, and overlapping just the ends to create a rectangle. I learned this genius trick from Gina a while back!

I also wanted to use this May Arts silk ribbon I've been hoarding...it just seemed fitting.

Ok, I'm going to sleep soon...so I'll see you folks tomorrow! Don't forget to check out the Verve blog for some sneak peeks and also the CPS sketch this week sponsored by Gina K!
