Be Happy!!!

Hello Everyone!!!  Well the DTGD week continues and this one thankfully incorporates three challenges - if I don't combine a few there is NO WAY I'm going to get all 33 done!!  This is a new Stamping Bella stamp I bought not long ago - isn't she CUTE!!!  The sentiment is part of the same set.  I don't know it's just so HAPPY!!  :)

I started with a pink bazzill base and layered with white and some Hey Birdie DSP.  The next panel is more white (punched on one end with the Lacy Days of Summer border punch) and topped with more Hey Birdie DSP.  Across the middle is some lighter pink bazzill (I actually embossed it with Swiss Dots - not that you can see it now!) and topped with some white crochet ribbon.  I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (R81, R83, R85, R89, G20, G21, G24, Y11, Y21, Y23, E31, E000, E01, 0) and cut out with Small Circle Nestabilities and matted with pale pink (large circle nestabilities) and dark pink (big scallop circle nestabilities) and popped it all up on X-press It Foam Mounting Tape.  Next I stamped the sentiment and cut it out as a notched tag, curving it a bit and added a foam butterfly (thanks to my dear friend Michelle) to the end and finally I finished by adding pink rhinestones to the butterfly and flowers of the image.
