Welcome to another Belli Challenge! This week's challenge is to use butterflies or dragonflies on your project. We also have a sponsor for the challenge - QKR Stampede. QKR Stampede very generously provided each Belli Girl a choice of three stamps for this week's challenge.
My first card uses Herd Birthday on the front and Happy Birthday on the inside. The patterned paper is from October Afternoon. I used the reverse side for my butterfly and for the strip on the inside. The ribbon is from Stampin' UP and the buttons and twine are from Papertrey Ink.
For my second card, I used Tulip Border and Happy Birthday again. The Happy Birthday set comes with four sentiments, so it's a great buy! I paper pieced my tulips using the same papers as I used on the background, which are from Memory Box's Biscotti Collection.
I popped the middle tulip flower up using a foam square and the matted panel is popped up with foam tape. The ribbon is from Martha Stewart and the buttons and dragonfly are from my stash.
For the inside, I used a 1" square punch to create three squares from the same paper I used on the front and paper pieced two more of the tulips. I punched the butterfly with a Martha Stewart punch and added three Memory Box crystals for the body.
We'd love for you to play along with us this week. QKR is offering $30 worth of stamps as the prize, so it would be worth your while to play! If you upload your card to Splitcoast Stampers or Papercraft Planet, use keyword CBC85. Please be sure to check out what all the other Belli Girls, and our guest designer, Jess Stockmeyer have done over on today's post on the Belli blog.
That's about it! Thanks for stopping by!
