Bella Birthday Bash Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Bella Birthday Bash Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella. If you've landed here from Jodi's blog then you're on the right track!

For my card I decided to use a new-to-me Bella, Predictabella. I'd been wanting this one for a while and finally caved when I was in Bellaland a couple weeks ago. I colored her with copics and paired her with some Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper. I stitched the panels and added one of Jo's buttony bows. The layout is from Mercy's Tuesday sketch challenge.

I also coated the crystal ball with crystal effects - fitting no? The stars on the table skirt got Stardust pen added to them.
Three gift certificates for $100 in Bella Bucks will be hidden along the hop, but we’re not telling you where, so be sure to leave some love as you hop!!! Make sure you leave comments on every post to have the best chance of winning! The winners will be announced on Monday, December 7th on the Stamping Bella Blog. MWAH!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Debi's blog to see what amazing Bella magic she's created!! Happy Hopping!!
