Belli Challenge #100 - Birthday Girl!

Welcome to another Belli Challenge!  This week's challenge is to include anything with begins with a 'B' (think buttons, brads, bows, bracket, etc....).  My card has a bunch of 'B' things - a big bow, a butterfly button, the Birthday Girl sentiment, the Bloomer rose balloon and the rose blooms on the patterned paper!  I believe I nailed this challenge!  The funny thing is, I didn't even make this card for the challenge, it just worked out that it fit the theme!  This is the birthday card I sent to my mother for her 90th birthday this past Monday.

The patterned papers are all from Webster's Pages, as is the green rose bloomer that I used for the balloon.  A group of my mother's friends nicknamed her Rose many years ago, so I like using the rose theme when I make cards for her.  The shirt and dress for my Pure Innocence girl were paper pieced and I colored her hair and skin using Copic markers and used Spica markers on her shoes, dress trim and barrette.

The button on the left side of the image is a butterfly, but it's hard to tell in the photo.  I stamped the image directly on the patterned paper. For the inside of the card, I thought this 'Make A Wish' sheet of the Webster's Pages set was appropriate.

If you would like to play along, just make a card that includes anything that begins with a 'B' and upload it on today's post over at the Creative Belli blog.  And be sure to head over there to check out what the rest of the design team has made for this challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
