Creative Belli Challenge

It's time again for another challenge over at the Creative Belli blog!  Our challenge, that will run for two weeks, is a Recipe Challenge - 1 Ribbon, 2 Design Papers, 3 Colors, and 4 Gems (pearls).  Remember that in keeping with the spirit of the Belli challenges, to use your old and forgotten embellishments!


I used some Echo park DP along with Old Olive, Green, and White.  The bird was punched with SU punches (Punch Potpourri) along with the little branches and the scallop edge.  The square rhinestones are from CTMH that I've had forever and always forget to use.  I used a very old Crazy 4 Challenge sketch for my card.

Be sure and head on over to Creative Belli and enter your creation!

Thanks for stopping by.........
Lynn
