Leaning Tower Of Stella

I admit it. When I first saw these Stella images on Stamping Bella, I thought, umm, nice for someone but NOT me!! I just didn't see what everyone was goo-goo-ga-ga over them for.
And then it happened. Lynn started posting these amazing cards with Stella. I mean, Look at them!! Aren't they just awesome?? So it happened. I have learned to love Stella.

Then came a dilema.....I didn't have any and couldn't decide which ones to order. So I did the next best thing...wished for them on the SCS wish RAK forum ( I have my own yahoo group that does similar things now--if you're interested, let me know) anyhoo, I wished for any Stella.

I was beyond happy when my wish was granted by Pinky66 on SCS!! I mean I seriously let out a squeal of delight!!

So after all's my first Stella card!!

I used sketch SC201 for the layout. The paper is CTMH Flower Power and the ribbon is CTMH as well--my fav ribbon that they are discontinuing, insert sob here!!!
I colored her with prismacolors and OMS with a touch of stardust pen to her wand and crown. I also used my glaze pen on the cherry so it'd have a nice shine.
The sentiment is from a retired TAC set as is the flowers on the inside and envelope.

Thank you, Lynn, for such wonderful inspiration!!

I did the exact same thing, lol!! I wasn't into them either until I received a card with one, so I wish rak'd for some to just make a card with one. Love your card, the colors are great and cute how you did the inside and envelope too!

I love your card and I must admit...I felt the same way you did about the Stellas. I still haven't colored any but I just ordered my first one. I ordered Stella holding I think a shoppong bag (kind of like billboardabella) so I can use her for anything.

Hi Danni,
I love how you show the inside of our cards not a lot do that and I really like how you stager your squares on the front of your cards gives the card a real finished quality to them. Loved your sassy Stella shes got attitude :o)
