Bella Blu Cards

I'm loving SU!s Bella Blu patterned paper. I've had so much fun making cards with it....Here are a few.

I think this may be one of my favorite cards! But lately I keep saying that! This card was so much fun - I just kept playing.
I took some lace and sponged it with SU! almost navy classic ink - I used scor-tape to attach it to a piece of almost navy c/s that I trimmed with my new border punch (too lazy to go downstairs and get the name, upper crest maybe?) And then I added some pearl "ribbon" also from Hobby Lobby to cover up the adhesive line. You can't see in the photo but the lace and c/s has a bit of glimmer to it cuz I sprayed it with Frost Glimmer mist. The almost navy c/s mat on the card front is also glimmered. The stamp set is SU! Friends 24-7 which has become one of my most frequently used sets

Here is a close up of the lace border.

Lately - I've been trying to make stuff with the "leftovers" when I work on a project. I end up having so many coordinating stuff laying around why not? Here is one I did with the leftovers from the one above.
I used sahara sand cardstock that I had embossed with a cuttlebug folder. You can't really see in the photo the ivory layer in the border is satin ribbon - I've become a ribbon fanatic!! I decided to try another paper rose (made from apples LOL) and used some Recollections/Michaels bling for the center.
Here is a close up of the rose. I think I like the one on the birthday card better.
Thats all for today!! Thanks for stopping by! Till next time!
