Creative Belli Challenge #74


Good morning everyone!!!! It's Wednesday and time for another Creative Belli Challenge!!! The Belli challenge this week is to make a fall themed card....check it out on the Creative Belli Blog!!

I am sooo excited to tell you that this week we are being sponcered by Creative Cute and More...a wonderful online store that specializes in die cuts, tags, hardware, and much more. They sent all the Belli girls some goodies to play with....my first card features this beautiful chocolate colored velvet frame.


The adorable cherries from Taylored Expression's Berries and Cherres set were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with copics. The image layer was attached to the frame and then popped up on dimensionals.





The shear ribbon from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store is the only embellishment. I wanted the Webster's Pages dp to showcase the beautiful velvet frame!!

The prize this week is wonderful! It will be your choice of a Boy or a Girl Birthday Card Kit. Each kit contains enough product to make 10+ cards and is valued over $30.00...Whoohoo!!!
Recipe:
Stamps: Taylored Expressions Berries and Cherries
Paper: Prism Blush Red Dark, Whisper White, Webster's Pages dp
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Creative Cuts and More Velvet Frame, Shear Red Ribbon, Dimensionals, Copics, White Gel Pen.




For this card I used the beautiful A2 Circle Window card base with the round cutout window from Creative Cuts and More. I ran the front through the Cuttlebug with the Dotted Swiss folder for a little texture.

The bird paper at the bottom and the paper piecing on the tree image from Unity's August Kit of the Month is Earth Love by Cosmo Cricket.

The tree trunks were colored with a Close to Cocoa marker, the bottom edge of the bird paper was scalloped with a Stampin up! punch, and the tree image was cut out with a round Nestability.

The dotted swiss ribbon fisishes it off.





Be sure to visit the Creative Belli Design Team Member's blogs to read more details about their designs. You will find lots of awesome ideas!!! If you upload a card to Splitcoast or PCP, be sure to add CBC74 in the keywords section.
