Creative Belli Challenge #119



Welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!! The challenge this two weeks is to make a card or project with a branch - you can use a branch stamp, real branch, punched branch, branch on patterned paper, or draw one yourself!! 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 branch is from Taylored Expressions Branching Out set....all the stamps were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. The birdhouse and birds were all stamped on scrap white cardstock, colored, cutout, and attached with foam dots. The designer papers were from Memory Box's Brioche collection and a MFT's Die-namics was used for the scallops. Sewing around the background layers, Baker's Twine, and a button finish it off.

This was also for a few other challenges:
1. A Spoon Full of Sugar - here comes summer
2. Creative Card Crew - wings
3. Ooh La La Creations - Happy Birthday
4. Charisma Cardz Challenges - something that flies
5. Pile it On - Summer Heaven

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 CBC119 in the keywords section.

This is beautiful, Joan, i love birdhouses. I was admiring the papers then read your post and realised that they are from the paper pack that I ordered yesterday, so I'm really happy to know that these gorgeous papers are on their way to me already. They look way more lovely on your card than they did in the photo on the site I ordered from. CoB
