Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #394 and Bellarific Friday Challenge

Hey Everyone!  I am back to share another card with you today.  As I had mentioned in a past post I have been trying to play along with some of my favourite challenges, and I had the chance again this week to play along with the Bellarific Friday one.

The challenge over at Stamping Bella was to use a current Stamping Bella stamp on the card, and die cut some element of the card!  This was easy as their stamps are one of the staples in my collection and the majority of my cards have a die cut element so this one was EASY!

The other challenge that I played along with was the one over at Cupcake Inspirations and I took the colours from this photo to inspire my card.

When I combined these two themes together I created a beautiful card!

Here's the front of the card...

Here's the side view of the card...

Here's the main image that I coloured on the card...
