It's a Bella Birthday for Mom!

Oh, I am so proud of my first Bella (and that I learned how to do Hyperlinks). I had to have Bellas, who doesn't? Bellas are rather strange if you really disect them, but they are also so extraordinary, not to mention so truly feminine and cute! Just look at their smiles, so inviting, and yet primitive, they have sticks for arms! Whatever it is they have, call it feminine wiles (is that the term?) - it made me buy five different Bellas! She is just too cute!

Which is why I chose her for my mom's birthday card. My mom turns 60 Thursday, I can hardly believe it! I wish I could be there with her to celebrate, but we live almost 300 miles away, and with two little ones, the trek can be very, well let's just say, long... But, I will see her in two weeks when I drive up to Philadelphia to attend the CKC at Valley Forge. It will be my first convention, and my first scrapbook weekend with mom. I am so excited! My sister calls us dorks, but I'm OK with that!

Anyway, I colored her hair with various orange and yellow Prismacolor Pencils and OMS to represent me (I have strawberry blonde hair). Of course, I had to use my Basic Grey Perhaps papers to compliment Flowahbella, plus I was happy to do something pinky. The sentiment is from Papertrey, more of my favorite stamps. Their stamps are so awesome, as is their paper, which I also used on this card. The Prismacolor Pencils seem to really adhere well to this paper, and yet it is so easy to move them around with the OMS. The ribbon is organza I picked up for .50 at a clearance sale - I love the color, but it is so not me - I'm an earthy girl! To top it all off, I had to use some primas, how would Flowahbella be complete without a few extra flowers thrown in there? I think she turned out rather nice and I hope my mom enjoys her. That's all for now, off to do some Soduku before bed. Have a wonderful night/day!

Totally lovely card! I love those primas (the way they kind of cascade to the left) and the rounded corners.
