Belli Challenge Wednesday!


Happy Wednesday! It's time for another Belli Challenge! This week's challenge is to use apples or pencils (back to school theme). The 'back t0 school' thing hasn't been part of my vocabulary for longer than I care to remember, and I had this apple paper in my stash, so I opted to make a card using apples!

The wheelbarrow of apples is from Gina K. Designs' Whimsical Autumn set and was stamped and colored on rustic white paper two times and the wheelbarrow portion was stamped once on Stampin' UP!'s wood paper. The wheelbarrow was cut from the wood paper and adhered to the rustic white paper. The apples were cut from the second sheet of rustic white and mounted using dimensional foam to give them a little depth.

The apple paper is from Die Cuts with a View, the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Vintage Picnic set and the green apple silk ribbon is from May Arts. I cut one of the apples from the paper and adhered it to the top of my bow.

To see what the other Belli Girls have created, please check out today's post on the Belli Blog. To play along with us, create a card or project using Apples, Pencils or a Back to School Theme, and share your link with us using Mr Linky over on the Belli Blog. We can't wait to see what you come up with. If you post to SCS or PCP or any other online gallery please use keyword CBC73 so we can find it.

Thanks for stopping by!
