how do i follow that up?

Well, thank you all so much for your wonderful comments about my Belli Challenge project yesterday. I hope to put it to good use soon!

This card is made with my new Halobella stamp with her accompanying sentiment "you're an angel." I didn't do a lot of coloring on this card and honestly the picture doesn't do it ANY justice AT ALL. It is all very light, very billowy, very soft. I used a sketch from Amy Rysavy (I think), and just went very minimalistic with it. The card stock is Purely Pomegranate (one of my all time favorite SU! colors...should order some more now!), the new Pink Pirouette, and I used some Berry Bliss DP. I colored Ms. Bella with COPICS, and added some Stardust Glitter Pen just on the outline of her wings and halo. Darn I wish the picture would have turned out better! Unfortunately I already sent this out to a friend that I really needed to thank for something, so I can't take another picture. Just picture a very lovely card here, k?!

Today is Thursday so what am I going to say? Yep! You got it...today is do something nice for someone else anonymously day! I decided to make this into a regular feature here at LLLC. So...each week I will post a Thoughtful Thursday reminder and you'll have until Sunday at 5:00 p.m. to comment back on the Thursday post what you have done nice for a stranger (anonymously) between Thursday and Sunday. And, yes...if you have played before you should still play again. Can you imagine how wonderful the world would be if we were all just kind to each other?! And, yes...I'll put a little something in the mail for the person whose name gets pulled out of a hat (box, hand...whatever). So...whatcha going to do this week? Poke Brain

Alright...I'm off to check out my blogs and watch the Tour De France. Have a super day! Mountain Bike

This is a very nice card. With this type of image and sentiment I think you did a great job going simplistic. It works well together. TFS!!!
Also, you reminded me. I should probably go get some Purely Pomegranite everything. I love that color.

Ok, I know you're totally not going to believe me, but I honestly think this is the best card I've seen done with this stamp. And the first one I've seen that really makes me think I might need it. Nice work!
