Creative Belli Challenge #94

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!!! The challenge this 2 weeks is a sketch with a patriotic theme. Be sure to use something old and forgotten from your stash...the Belli Challenge is all about using your old stuff and forgotten treasures!!!

My card uses the beautiful We Are Memory Keepers dp along with the retired Stampin Up! set called Star-Spangled Banner (unloved and unused since last year!!). I used markers to color the stamp and then stamped it on vanilla cardstock. The sentiment is from a part of another stamp from the same set and the punched stars, buttons, floss and ribbon finish it off. My floss is over 20 years old...I guess that qualifies for old and forgotten...LOL!!!

This is also for a few other challenges:

1. Kah-Wink-E-Dink - free for all
2. Incy Wincy - music (I have musical notes on the background paper)
3. Lexi's Creations - something old (my floss)
4. Wednesday Stamper - Love something.....I love the USA!!!
5. MelJen's Designs - ribbon
6. The Crazy Challenge - You are a Star
7. Tangled Up in Creativity Challenge - red/white/blue

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 CBC94 in the keywords section

Hi Joan, why yes I would say we do have a few things in common! I am trying to hang in there. Hubby is on his 4th deployment right now! I keep looking at the light at the end. I sure will be glad when it gets real BRIGHT! :). In the mean time I just craft my heart out I guess to help pass the time. I just started the blog so I am having fun finding other blogs. It's been great and wonderful inspiration. Love your blog and your work!
