Creative Belli Challenge #125-Acetate or Vellum

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. It's time for another Creative Belli Challenge. This 2 week period our team has a vellum or acetate challenge for you.

Remember, the spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!  Everyone is welcome to play along! Challenge a stamping friend!! Just follow the theme.

If you upload to an online such as Splitcoaststampers, please use keyword CBC125.

For my card, I chose to use vellum. I had acetate in my stash somewhere but I couldn't find it until I completed my vellum card (lol).

I stamped my balloon flower images on vellum and then heat embossed. I added a subtle touch of color with chalks to the other side of the flower. I cut them out and then popped them up for a little dimension.

My flower images are from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps- "your friendship" set.
This set is really versatile as well as beautiful. It could also be used to make poinsettias as an example .Look for those from me around Christmas time.

My layout is a sketch from the Paper Players blog.

I used Stampin-Up's pear pizzazz and pretty in pink cardstock as well as pear pizzazz designer paper. I added stain ribbon and a button center to complete my card.

Well, that's it for this post. Make sure you check out what the other Belli Girls have created. There is some fab eye candy you won't want to miss.

Some other challenges:
1.  The Stampin Sisters in Christ blog We are to chose at least 3 of the following for our card: ribbon, button, brad, popped-up images, a swirl, brad, hat pin or charm. I went with the ribbon, button and popped up images.

2.  The creative card crew blog has an anything goes challenge.

3.  The Stamps R Us blog also has an anything goes challenge.
