Belli Challenge #96 - Sketch and Something That Moves!


It's time for another Belli Challenge! This week's challenge is a combination - a sketch challenge, plus something that moves.  In keeping with the Belli philosophy of using long-held items from you stash, I pulled out this ready-made shaker box with the palm tree and waves in the background.  I have had this shaker box from Magic Scraps for probably 5 years...from back in the days when I thought I was going to be a scrapbooker! 

I tossed in a fish charm and starfish and sand dollar buttons and then added some sand to make up my moving element.  Here's a closer shot of it:

I stamped the sentiment, from Impression Obsession, directly on the background paper, which is from Webster's Pages Seaside Retreat 6x6 paper pad.  I added a strip of striped paper, also from this collection, leftover from a previous card and layered it with some fish ribbon from American Crafts.  The ribbon and the shaker box were both white, so I toned them down by sponging them with some Old Paper and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.



For the inside of my card, I used a scrap of wave paper from my stash and added one of the Webster's Pages Journaling Cards, also from Seaside Retreat.  I stamped my sentiment, from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Basics set, directly on the Journaling Card.  I attached them both to a piece of ivory card stock that I had cut the top and bottom edges of using an EK Success border punch.

We'd love for you to play along!  All you have to do is make a card or other project using this sketch and include something that moves.  You can make a shaker card like I did, or a spinner or waterfall card, or you can use an image that appears to be moving.  Most importantly, use something old and neglected out of your stash! 

To play along, link your project over on today's Belli Challenge post.  Make sure you also head over there to check out what the rest of the Design Team made using the sketch and something that moves!

 Thanks for stopping by!
