Creative Belli Challenge #109

Welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!! The challenge this two weeks is a fun one....use things that start with the letter P!! This can include patterned paper, pearls, patchwork, petals, paper piecing, piercing, pigs - anything that strikes your fancy as long as it starts with a P!!
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 a beautiful flower image (petals) from Layers of Color's Merci Bouquet set. The image was colored with copics, cutout, and popped up on the stacked Nesties. Silver pearls were added to the flower centers. Sewing was done around the edges of the striped patterned paper, and lace, rhinestone flourish, and a silk bow finish it off.
Stamps: Layers of Color Merci Bouquet
Papers: Pure Luxury Ivory, Pure Luxury Cranberry Tart, Basic Black, 7 Gypsies Striped Patterned Paper, Daisy D's Patterned Paper
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Copics, Silver Pearls, Lace, Die-namics scalloped die, Sewing Machine, Nestabilities, Rhinestone Flourish, Silk Ribbon

Be sure to stop by the other Belli Girls blogs to see what they made for 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 CBC109 in the keywords section.
