creative belli challenge #112

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.

It's time for another Creative Belli challenge. The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!

Our challenge is about animals or creatures that come out of hibernation. You can use stamps, chipboard, punch art of animals etc

You can create any project you like as long as it follows the theme.

Everyone is welcome to play along!   Here's how to enter:

**Please link back to the Belli Challenge in your post**  and provide a DIRECT LINK to your new posting dated between March 2nd ~ March 15th.

My card uses a number of elements that will be coming out of "hibernation" soon. I started with some designer paper from my stash.  It's from my littleshoe box "life in slow motion" collection. I thought it showed what I was trying to accomplish with my card & sentiment.

Birds are singing-flowers are growing-ladybugs & butterflies are back. I used an old glitter rub-on butterfly. I cut it out and popped up for some dimension.

The ladybugs & purple butterfly are buttons from my stash. I bought them from QVC years ago. The sentiment is computer generated and is a scripture verse from the Song of Solomon. I thought it described where my creative thought process was going with this challenge.

Drop by the Creative Belli Blog and take a peek at what the rest of my design team sisters have created. You will find some great inspiration.

Some other challenges:

1.  This is also for the challenge on the oldie but a goodie blog. They have a spring is in the air challenge.

Until next time......
