My first "Bella"

Hello Friends, hope you are well today. 

It was only recently that it dawned on me  that I didn't have a WRS Bella stamp in my collection so set about rectifying that situation!!

 Here is the result...


... brand, spanking new NBUS!!

I decided to make myself a drawer easel  to store my pink buttons!!

I made the drawer and easel with some cardstock that (I am ashamed to say) has been loitering in my oddments drawer. I have a feeling it was bought from Create and Craft years ago and was part of a kit. The beautiful gathered ribbon and string of pearls came from a local haberdashery and was buried among more never before used schtuff!




Here is a little angled shot too.















I think I can safely say that this Bella won't be the last!!

Here are the challenges I am entering

Crafty Cardmakers #123 - Ribbon/lace & pearls
DJkardkreations - NBUS #2
Crafty Boots #120 - Anything Goes
Not just cards #2 - Anything Goes

Take care and see you soon xx

Hi Sarah,
beautiful creation.
I love the fab design of this, and your stamped image is great.
Do you know I have never attempted one of these, it must go on my list of tries.
Now as you said you you used a item that has never before been used you could join in with Darnell's NIMBUS challenge too, as she allows you to enter 5 other challenges as well as hers.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
