Creative Belli Challenge #105

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!! The challenge this 2 weeks is to use something that starts with an R such as rick rack, rhinestones, ribbon, rubber, ruffles....or any combination of these. 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 the sketch from the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #134 and the adorable Thanksgiving Cuppies from Taylored Expressions Gobble Gobble set. The cuppies were colored with copics and mounted on an oval cut Nestie that was sponged with Going Grey. The background paper is from Earth Love by Cosmo Cricket and my R embellies include rhinestones and ribbon.
Stamps: Taylored Expressions Gobble Gobble
Paper: Vanilla, Basic Gray, More Mustard, Earth Love dp by Cosmo Cricket
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Going Gray
Accessories: Ribbon, Rhinestones, Corner Rounder, nestabilities

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - anything goes
2. Daring Card Makers - 3 of something
3. Lots To Do - favorite technique (coloring with copics)
4. One stitch at a Time - season or event
5. Hope Stamps Eternal Cupcake Inspiration- fall colors and theme
6. Crazy 4 Challenges - use circles (I have round rhinestones and the round cherry on the little girl pilgrim)
7. My Sheri Crafts - Thanksgiving/harvest
8. Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge - circles (I have round rhinestones and the round charry on the little girl pilgrim)

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 CBC105 in the keywords section.
