This week's Stamping Bella challenge features an awesome sketch from Julee (#18). I went looking through my SB stamps to select one that would fit nicely with the sketch. The company has reissued some of the Bella stamps not long ago as Bellas 2.0, in a new, reworked look. Seeing some of the old images redesigned made me nostalgic for my old Bella stamps, which I totally loved then and still do now. Despite the fact that the weekly challenge calls for current SB stamps to be eligible to win, I still decided to use one of the retired images, because I think all of our stamps need love - whether they're current or retired. I've been rediscovering my Prismacolor pencils lately, so they're also what I used to color the image.
The bright papers are from Doodlebug Design's Fun in the Sun collection. The funky striped background just makes me smile with its bright colours and funky patterns.
The "Happy Birthday" sentiment was pulled from the Rose Wonder stamp set.
