Creative Belli Challenge - Wood


Happy Wednesday! It's time for another Creative Belli Challenge! This week's challenge is to incorporate wood in your project. You can use a wood grain background stamp, wooden embellishments, sticks, a stamp of a wooden image or wood grain paper - whatever you have! If you would like to play along, please post your creation using Mr. Linky on today's post over at the Creative Belli Challenge!

For my card, I started out with the wooden butterfly from Kaisercraft and then figured I'd add the wooden tag from Judy's Stone House Designs Creative Laser Wood Accents for good measure! Next I settled on last week's SC237 sketch over at Splitcoast Stampers, and finally, I selected the Making Memories Flower Patch paper collection for my patterned papers, Prism Teal card stock for the card base and mat layers and KI Memories Bloom Tulips Surreal Frost Lace for the strip across the middle

I inked the edges of the butterfly and the tag with Versacolor Old Rose ink and added some Patina and Fruit Punch Stickles to the butterfly's antennae and wings for a little extra interest. The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms' Script Essentials Expressions set.

I think that about covers it. Hope you are having a good week! Thanks for stopping by!
