You can never have too much *Sparkle*

ETA: Did I mention that there are THREE new Bellas?? Savvyshoppabella, ipodabella, and mwahbella (my favorite). OMG I loveyyyyyyy them! (as Em would say) ANNNNNNNNNNDDDD there's free shipping through today for orders over $25. Use this coupon code: 11b49b (CASE SENSITIVE)

Yep, I've officially lost it. I've taken to making tacky cards. Ok, not really (I hope), but this was my sample card for the challege I hosted for the Bella da Ball on Friday night. The challenge was to make a card that was sparkly, shiny, totally over-embellished, an "everything but the kitchen sinkabella" card. Julee also made a fabulous sample, and you can take a look at it here.

I also used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch, and I love how it turned out! I paper pieced Elizabella's dress with Basic Grey Blush paper, and added stickles and color to her shoes, purse, & belt. I thought this sentiment fit the challenge perfectly...and it's my favorite one from Starlight Starbright!!

Speaking of Starlight Starbright, Verve will be releasing a revamped version of this set in high quality clear photopolymer!! There will also be 6 clear sentiment sets released. Stay tuned to the Verve blog for more info!
