Creative belli Challenge #118

Welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!! The challenge this two weeks is to make a card or project with things from your..TOOL SHED - bring out those forgotten tools (button maker, cropadile, eyelet setter, tag maker, etc...) I used a crimper for the tree and a cloud die that I haven't used is quite a while.
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 adorable Perky Plants set from Paper Smooches....the flowers and bee were paper pieced with Stella Rose Paper from My Minds Eye and the sentiment was stamped on the cloud diecut from Taylored Expressions. The tree was cutout of a piece of Stella Rose dp and crimped with a crimper..... sewing was done around the background edges. The grass was cutout with MFT's Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics and the Baker's Twine and button finish it off.

This is for a few other challenges:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - things with wings
2. Creative Card Crew - anything goes
3. The Moxie Fab Workd Trigger Tuesday - I used the fun colors from the Pyrex bowls
4. Craft Us Crazy - favorite embellishment (buttons)
5. Some Odd Girl - create a scene


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 CBC118 in the keywords section.

Oh Joan, I adore this card! Love your use of bright designs to paper-piece the images. Also I like the way it puts the viewer down at the level of the plants, it's like we're right there. So cute! Really put a smile on my face, that has. CoB
