Can't Get Enough of the Belli Challenge!!

Good morning everyone!!! You should see my neighborhood...there is a snowman in almost every yard...tooo fun!!! It snowed all day yesterday and man was it beautiful!!! Just like a silly Texan, I had to take a bunch of pictures...it might not snow again for a year or two so I had to document the wonderful memory. Anyway....

I wanted to share with you another card I made for last weeks Belli challenge with one of the stamps I received from the sponsor on the Belli Challenge blog. QKR Stampede was so generous in providing stamps to all the Belli Girls, and we truly appreciate their kindness!!
The Floral Oval from QKR Stampede was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. The corners were pierced and then tiny black rhinestones were added for a little glam. The layered Nesties, ribbon, and punched butterflies finish it off.

I made this for a few other challenges:
LaLa Land Crafts - to use red
Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge - recipe: use something 3-dimensional, a stamped image, and yellow and green somewhere on the card.
Lexi's Creations - anything goes
Totally Gorjuss - flower power

This week's Belli Challenge is butterflies and dragonflies, so head on over to the Belli Blog to enter the link to your own card or project. You could win a $30 shopping spree from QKR Stampede! How cool is that!!

Many thanks to QKR Stampede for providing the Belli Girls with all the wonderful stamps for us to play with.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day!!
