Bella Birthday Balloons

A lady at my Mom's work is wanting me to make her cards and I have felt so burned out from Xmas cards, but I finally stepped into the dungeon today. It felt good to do some colouring. I really want to take the plunge into copic markers this year. What colours to start with, is my scare and to use them properly.
I got this cute Bella image from a Bella exchange with Beth (scrappin beth) on SCS. Great way to get a variety of Bella's without having to purchase them all. Hey, Beth.. time to do another one? :o)
My dear and talented friend Mel (Mel stampz) made these foam flowers, paper flowers, brads, a little box to hold the foam flowers and the packaging that the little flower container was in. I need to take a picture of them to show her great talent.
I matched up the colours in the flowers with SU colours, added a paisley cuttlebug folder and a sentiment.
My question: What would you pay for this card w/ envelope? I am having a hard time pricing.
Now to get to making my girls 6 Bday party invites. I really want to keep them simple, but still look decent. Hmm...
Happy New Year to all of you and wishing you a fabulously creative year!

Hey this is wonderfully pastelly! Nice job. I'm all ready to do another swap. As a matter of fact, just this week I stamped a number of images for you and then got stumped by needing to find your address. I'm hoping to do some pictures tomorrow and updating on SCS!
So leave me a message with what you'd like to swap.
Our new address is
And... I got Copic markers for Christmas... they're not as scary as it sounds. Mine came from Curry's Art Supplies; they're Canadian and $3.49 for Caios. I found a SU colour matching list, so I started with SU colours that I use the most. I can forward my excel list if you want? I'll try to upload some colouring tomorrow.
Sweet dreams and I'l ttyl.
