Creative Belli Challenge #100

Hello everyone and welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!! The challenge this 2 weeks is to use anything that starts with a B!! Be sure to use something old and forgotten from your stash, too...the Belli Challenge is all about using your old stuff and forgotten treasures!!!

My card features a beautiful Cotton Scrap from Crafty Secrets...it was mounted on a frame that was painted with Frayed Burlap crackle paint. Lace was used to cover the Kraft background layer whick was popped up with foam tape. The wood bird on a branch from KaiserCraft, the prima with button and twine, the bow, and the metal butterfly that I have had for a couple of years finish it off. That's four B's....let's see what you can do!!

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Belles'n Whistles - lace and frills
2. The Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog - use a minimum of 3 different embellies
3. The Shabby Tea Room - use green and nature inspired
4. Really Reasonable Ribbon - flowers
5. Stampin for the Weekend - shabby or vintage
6. Lexi's Creations- flower power
7. Totally Gorjuss - flowers

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 , PCP, Stamp TV or another online gallery be sure to add CBC100 in the keywords section.
