Creative Belli Challenge #114

Welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!! The challenge this two weeks is to Think Seamstress!! This can include buttons, sewing, sewing stamps, notions, pins......what ever your little heart desires!!! 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 the sketch from the Walzingmouse Sketch Challenge and a Waltzingmouse stamp set called Sewing Box - Hugs. I just love these little stamps...they look like sewing has been done around the edges with all the tiny stitches!! Sewing was done around the background edges and the banners, background paper, and the flowers were all cut from American Crafts dp called The Color of Memories. The sentiment is from the same set and the buttons, twine, and candy dots finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:

1. Random Amusing Challenge - use something you have been horarding/saving (my paper)

2. The Stamping Boutique - handmade flowers



Be sure to stop by the other Belli Girls blogs to see what they made for you today....you will find lots of awesome inspiration!!! If you upload a card to Splitcoast , PCP, Stamp TV or another online gallery be sure to add CBC114 in the keywords section.


















Thanks for stopping by...hope you can do something super special today!!!!
