This week's Stamping Bella challenge was an inspiration picture showing a frame. I knew I wanted to use Uptown Girl Curly Clara Needs Your Address because it was in the pile of things I had put aside to use shortly. I also wanted to incorporate the brick wall aspect of the inspiration image but for the life of me, I couldn't find my grit paste anywhere so I just had to put that idea aside for now. The colors were inspired by MFT Color Challenge #61 and the design by CAS(E) This Sketch #205. The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils and the corners were punched with the Curvy Corner Trio Punch, then accented with Candy Dots. The sentiment comes from my new favorite sentiment set, Suite Sentiments (Occasions Catalogue, p. 54), which you've seen appear on all of my recent cards. This sentiment reads, "Everyone needs a friend like you." I wanted to stamp a little something to embellish the side of the card base, so I pulled out an old unmounted wheel called Bouquet to stamp the edge.
