Have you seen the stamps that are kicking up a storm in the USA and are rapidly getting a fan base over here in the UK - Bella Stamps. Gosh, I am totally hooked! I think this may be the first of many 'Bella Cards' on It's A Creative World.
Adhere paperfrill to pink card, trim and ink edges to create a paper 'ribbon'.
Attach to card, line up both sides so that they are even before gluing!
Stamp 'Bella' using Staz-on ink and colour with watercolour pencils or paints, mat onto pink cardstock and ink the edges using charcoal chalk ink.
Use foam pads down one side of you stamped image to attach it to one side of your card.
Trim a piece of patterned paper to fit inside your card, ink the edges and glue in place.
Trim a plain piece of paper, doodle around the edges and glue in place. Now you have somewhere to write your message.
Voila! A funky Bella Card.

Glue a toning length of ribbon across card and trim edges with sharp scissors to prevent fraying (I keep my ribbon and fabric scissors seperate to my paper scissors so keep them sharp).
Stamp an image with a permanent ink pad and colour with watercolour paints of pencils, trim to size and ink around the edges with black chalk ink. Attach to your card with foam pads to raise the image from the background and give extra definition.
Select co-ordinating buttons and attach with strong glue down the side of the card or you could add a sentiment instead of buttons
