And oh, let's take it easy and celebrate the malleable reality...Because nothing is ever as it seems, this life is but a dream...

Happy Friday, y'all! I hope you all had a great week. Today's Bellariffic Friday, and I have a rare treat for you...a ONE LAYER card! I know, it doesn't happen very often, so enjoy it! *wink*

This week, Emily challenged us to create a card with Gold and Bling. Now, the bling part was easy enough, but I don't have many gold things around my stamp room. Here's what I came up with.

I stamped Kenya Ketto in Black Stazon on a Fabriano notecard, then watercolored her with a waterbrush & reinkers. Once she was colored, I added Gold Interference Pearl Ex to her wand and the flowers on her dress, and Diamond Stickles on her shoes and the very center of her sparkle wand. Here's a close-up:

Once she was dry, I tied a strip of Aqua Ribbon Garter along the side, and threaded it through a Vintage Rose Button. The final touch was the Thinking of You sentiment stamped in Stazon.

Thanks for coming by to visit me today! Don't forget to check out the eye candy from the rest of the Babes and the Sistahood on Emily's Blog, and comment there for a chance to win some Bella Bucks! Have a fabulous weekend!
