Creative Belli Challenge

Hope y'all aren't getting tired of me popping in the last couple of days! 

Today begins another challenge over at Creative Belli and what we'd like to see is Just A Sentiment!  Pretty easy, right - but just don't forget to use your old and forgotten embellishments.  Stop by the Creative Belli blog and enter your creation - and check all the wonderful inspiration from the DT.


My card turned out pretty simple (no, make that VERY simple) but I was able to get rid of some of these paper flowers I've had forever.  You very seldom see flowers on my cards - but today you get a BIG one!! LOL!  I didn't have a big white one to go behind the purple ones, so I embossed a piece of white card stock in Swiss Dots and punched out a scalloped circle.  I also embossed the purple with a Texturz plate.  The DP is some from SU that I haven't used in a long time and the sentiment is from SU.  I'm not real where this button came from....surely the buttons aren't back there breeding like the DP now!    LOL!  Scary thought!

Thanks for stopping by......and be sure and check out the Creative Belli Challenge.

Simple cards are sometimes the most effective Lynn...I really love this - that big flower is just gorgeous! Such beautiful colours and it is a great birthday card :)

Marilyn said...

Very pretty Lynn. You know, I didn't even notice the white one wasn't a flower until I read it... the way you've put it together, it blends right in. I love that flowered paper you used on the bottom.

Anne Temple said...

Becky said...

Your sense of humor keeps me entertained every time I come here to visit :) Breeding buttons.....hmmmm......now that you mention it, I may have some going on in my jars too! Bwahahaha!!
Seriously, this is a great card! I love the fresh spring colors and I love that you put a scalloped circle behind the flower! I thought it was a white flower! Nice work on this one!

So pretty!!! Simple and fast are really good sometimes!!!

Margaret said...

Love that big beautiful paper flower, and such a pretty card! Reproducing supplies...that just might explain it! Sounds better than us buying too much!!!

Bonnie said...

If buttons start breeding like DP, we're in BIG trouble, Lynn. I love these little flowers and the big one. Very creative to punch a white scallop, embossed circle to put behind the flower.
