Belli #54 - Doilies




Good morning everyone!! Ok, first I want to apoligize for telling you a big story....I told you that I wasn't going to make another Valentine. Well, the Belli challenge this week is to use a doily on a card....since doilies belong on Valentines, I just had to make one more!!! Now, for sure and cross my fingers and hope to swallow a frog if I make another Valentine...this is the very last one till next year!!!!!!


What better image to use for the last Valentine (for sure!!!) than Taylor's sweet little kissing cuppies from her Love is Sweet set!! They were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. I used a dot from a white gel pen to add the highlight on the cheeks.






The paper is from My Minds Eye as are the scallop and the sentiment tag. Baja Breeze, Regal Rose, and Riding Hood Red cardstock was used and heart buttons, doily, and ribbon from Taylored Expressions finish it off.
The Belli Challenge was created by Chris (Chrissyd723)Dickinson to inspire us to use the *stuff* lying around our stamping spaces...those long forgotten goodies that we once had to have!! Anyone can play, so get out your scraps, stamps, and embellies!! Check out Chris' blog for details on how to win the challenge!!
Be sure to visit the Belli Design Team Member's blogs to see the beautiful doily cards they designed!! You will find lots of awesome ideas!! Remember to check out Chris' blog to see how you can win!! If you upload a card to Splitcoast, be sure to add CBC54 in the keywords section.
Whoohoo!! Welcome to the Belli Challenge ladies...we are sooo glad to have you join our little group!!!
Thanks for visiting today and I hope you have a great day!!!

I love the Valentines day cards so keep making them. If you swallow a frog you will be croaking while you talk... so avoid that at all cost. hee hee This is too cute, I love these cupcakes kissing. Adorable JOan.
