Creative Belli Challenge #104

Hello everyone and welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!! The challenge this 2 weeks is to use something old, something new, something borrowed, or something blue....or any combination of these...it doesn't have to be a wedding card unless that is what you want to make. !! 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!!!

I used a combo of something old ( the patterned paper), something new (new Inkadinkado stamp), and something blue (Pure Luxury Little Boy Blue cardstock).
The Inkadinkado Santa stamp was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Vintage Ornaments and the blue snowflakes were punched with a Martha Stewart punch. Sewing was done around the edges of the patterned paper layer and the pearls, sparkly snowflake, and baker's twine finish 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 , PCP, Stamp TV or another online gallery be sure to add CBC104 in the keywords section.


This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Stamp Insanity - punches
2. Patty's Creations - Christmas
3. Allsorts Challenge - take inspiration from the poem Twas the Night Before Christmas
4. A Spoonful of Sugar - snow/snowflakes
5. Caardvarkes - die cuts
6. Top Tip Tuesday - Christmas inspired
7. Stampin Sisters in Christ - anything that displays weather related

What a great card! That Santa is awesome with all the detail and those snowflakes, love the details. I need sewing lessons from you, I think I have given up with sewing on cards :( yours is so straight and even. Another terrific card.
