Belli Challenge #87 - Clips and a Sketch!

Hello! Welcome to another Belli Challenge! This week's challenge is two-fold.  The first part of the challenge is to use clips - paper clips, binder clips, swirly clips, whatever you have in your stash! The second part of the challenge is to use our first-ever Belli Challenge sketch:


I turned the sketch vertical and used a flower shaped clip.  My card base is Papertrey Ink Terra Cotta Tile and my patterned papers are Bo Bunny's Kitchen Spice - Allspice and Clove papers.  My focal image and sentiment are from Papertrey Ink's Blooming Button Bits and Birthday Basics sets. The center flower is popped up on some foam tape.

The flower shaped clip is from Spare Parts and my rhinestone-centered paper flower is from Petaloo.  It was originally white and I colored it with a Copic marker to match my patterned papers. 

I layered two different ribbons behind my focal image - the polka dot is from American Crafts and the chocolate brown is from Martha Stewart. 

For the inside, I used strips of my patterned paper and a sentiment from the Birthday Basics set. 

Please be sure to check out what the rest of the Belli Girls have done for the challenge.  If you would like to play along with us, please link your entry to today's Belli Challenge post and use keyword CBC87 if you upload to SCS or PCP,

Thanks for stopping by!
