Belli Challenge #85 - Round Two!


Happy Wednesday! Today I'm posting a second card using the QKR Stampede Tulip Border for our current Belli Challenge, which is to use butterflies or dragonflies. This time I colored the tulips with Copic markers to match the Heidi Grace Designs patterned papers.

My background panel was made using Core'dinations card stock and a Cuttlebug embossing folder. After I ran the folder through my Wizard, I sanded the paper while is still in the folder to bring out the lighter colored core.

The sketch I used is from my friend Sally over at Asleep on the Couch. She's having a Birthday Bash and is celebrating her birthday by giving away presents! How fun is that? You have until Sunday to enter her contest if you would like to play along. In addition to this sketch challenge, she's also got a color challenge.

For the inside of my card, I used a strip of the Core'dinations paper with a Cuttlebug border folder. The sentiment is also from QKR Stampede's Happy Birthday set.

Be sure to head over to the Belli Challenge and see what the rest of the Belli girls have done and if you want to play along with us this week, be sure to add a link to your card using Mr. Linky on last week's post. If you are posting your card to Splitcoast Stampers or Paper Craft Planet, use keyword CBC85.

Thanks for looking!
