*Black and Pink Bella*

Spring has sprung again in Calgary. It's above 0 already this morning and getting warmer as we speak. The snow we got on Wednesday has mostly melted and the kids are on their bikes on their way to school this morning. The forecast looks good for the next few days so let's keep our fingers crossed that the sunshine will stay and the snow will not show up again, at least for a little bit. I'm sure we'll get more!

My card today was totally inspired and somewhat CASEd after seeing a card on Tracy's blog. Tracy is a great gal. I met her through my friend Natalie as their husbands are brothers. Natalie brought Tracy along when we were talking about starting a stamp club almost two years ago. Tracy joined, had a great time and then signed up to sell Stampin' Up as a member of my downline. She makes some great stuff so please be sure to check out her blog!

Tracy got the layout for this card from Amy's Blog ... Amy does Super Sketch Sunday's and this was her layout this past week. And I, of course got not only the layout for Amy (via Tracy) but the colour combination from Tracy as well! It just totally stuck in my head. And then I had this great ribbon to use... and voila.... a card just like Tracy's! LOL!

I just love the way the pink pops out on that black cardstock! I realized after I uploaded the photo that I forgot to give my pretty little Bella some floor to stand on.... sorry pretty little Bella! I've become totally addicted to adding Stickles to my Prima Flowers... good thing Fran has a box with more Stickles headed my way!

Speaking of Bellas.... do you love them? If yes, there's a support group for you! A YahooGroup has been started for Bella Lovers. Check it out if you want! A YahooGroup is an email list... you send an email to one address and it is distributed to all members of the group via their personal email. It's a neat way to make new friends!

Gorgeous card! I totally thought the flower was a bazill bling flower... but you used stickles?! Wow, it looks so cool! I'll have to give that a try when I get my primas from Janet.
