Simply Bella and Guest DT Call

Good evening peeps.  I hope you're having a wonderful week so far.  The week is half over so that means the weekend will be here before you know it.  I'm hoping for some really nice weather this weekend but unfortunately the weather report shows us getting lots of rain.  I sure hope all that rain brings some May flowers LOL!  Well, since you probably didn't come here for my weather report, let me get to my card.

I've seen these cards all around blogland and have always wanted to try one.  So, I finally made a free standing pop-up card.  You can find the directions here.  I colored the cute Bella Bunting with copics and colored pencils.  I added some stickles to her socks and the hearts on her hairbow and shoes.  I added some ribbon and a bow to the front and then added some flowers with pearls on top of the base.  The card folds flat for mailing.  I forgot to take a picture of it folded but you can see how it looks folded if you go to the site for directions.

You can find this adorable Bella Bunting and all the other sassy cuties over at Funky Kits.  Don't forget, there will be  a new challenge over at The Sugar Bowl tomorrow so be sure to stop by and check it out.  

I also want to mention that the Simply Sassy Design Team is holding a Guest DT call.  You can find out all the details here.  They're an awesome team of ladies and I know you would enjoy working with them and those adorable Simply Sassy images!

Thank you for stopping by.
