Creative Belli Challenge #121

Welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!! The challenge this two weeks is to make a card or project with CUSTOM MADE BELLIES - make your own embellishments (custom dye ribbon, crochet your own flowers, make your own paper flowers, make your own paper buttons, etc...)
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!!!

My card features the adroable stamp from Lilli of the Valley. It was colored with copics and mounted over doilies. The diecut flowers and buttons were made using Basic Grey Sweet Threads dp, a Martha Stewart punch was used for the leaves, and the Baker's Twine finishes it off.
Recipe: Stamps: Lilli of the Valley, Paper: Vanilla, PTI's Spring Moss, Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss, Regal Rose, Basic Grey's Sweet Threads, Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Accessories: Papertey Ink Button and Flower Dies, Baker's Twine, Doilies, Copics, Martha Stewart Leaf Punch

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Hooked on Craft challenge - flowers
2. My Time to Craft Challenge - food
3. Papertake Weekly Challenge - buttons
4. Riley and Company - dies and punches
5. Try it on Tuesday - flower power

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 CBC121 in the keywords section.

Ah, now I see how Creative Belli gets it's name...it's about the Bellies! Duh, sounds obvious now i think about it, lol.

Joan, that really is an adorable little scene in your image. Your colouring is nice and bright too which is perfect to bring it to life. Love the graduated colour on the bag of flour, very prettily done. CoB
