Good Luck - a - Bella

I made a cute card for you to check out tonight (while doing dishes, cooking dinner, playing with the kids and ~sorta~ being nice to the hubby)!!
The Bellariffic challenge that inspired my colors (and stamp choice) is here.
The great (and often visited) blog that gave me a great sketch to work with is here.
I only changed this card ... like ... 14 times before I glued everything down. The two patterned papers are from the paper studio. That gorgeous good luck redhead is a bella, of course. The ribbon - yep, it's from the dollar bin at Michael's. I punched out the little taglet for the sentiment using a Creative Memories nesting punch. The little flower was picked out by the hubby (it's a Jolee).
And obviously, I colored it with my copics.
Now, I think this is one of my better photos. (probably ever) I used the lightbox hubby made me. Sadly, I was too darn lazy to iron the fabric... but I've got a plan so that I won't have to do that so much. I'm going to cut and *gasp* sew the fabrics so that they'll be just the right size and won't require so much wrangling. When I showed the photo to Reynold, he said, "Why the heck did you put your copics in the picture with your card?"
My reply, "I've seen other people do it. Everyone makes their photo cute somehow..."
"Copics are not cute."
"THEY ARE TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!"
enjoy ;)
** note - I don't know what is up with spacing on this post. I like to have a space between paragraphs, but they keep disappearing. sorry
