Creative Belli Card

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.
Today I am showing another of my Christmas cards and it's also for the the creative belli blog challenge.

This week its all about Christmas creations. We encourage you to use your old and forgotten embellishments in all of our Belli Challenges.

This can include ribbons, brads, buttons, glitter, patterned paper, chipboard, stickers - anything that is Christmas themed. It must be a NEW project!

I used this card layout for several of my cards this year. It is from the mojomonday blog, sketch 164. I saw this card on sarah's creations blog and loved the paper she used. It was from last year's Stampin-Up "Christmas cocoa" collection.

Anytime I can use up my stash is a good thing.

The image is from the perfect punches set and I punched it out with Stampin-Up's ornament punch. On my white panel I used the cuttlebug folder "winter wonderland". There are 5 folders in this pack and the one I used is the ornament folder.

My center square uses the spellbinder's lacy square die. I added some ribbon and that completed my card.

Stop by the other "belli girls" blogs to see the beauties they have created:

Darsie Bruno, Holly Brown, Joan Ervin, Joy Hadden, Anne Harmon, Robin Kirkpatrick, Robin Parker, Chris Dickinson, Maria Matter, Chris Olsen, Ceal Pritchett, Karen Wallace, Jessica Stockmeyer, Shelly Schmidt

I am in the middle of wrapping Christmas gifts so it's time to close this post. Merry Christmas everyone in case you don't drop by before then.

Some additional challenge for this card:

1.  A spoonful of sugar blog has a christmas challenge running.

2.  The stampin' for the weekend blog also has a Christmas challenge.

3.  The stamp-n-doodle blog has a winter and sparkle challenge running. This card has sparkle on the designer paper and I used a rhinestone in the center of my ornament.
