Creative Belli Challenge Card

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

It's time again for another creative belli bi-weekly challenge.
This is challenge #115 and the theme is Easter, You can use eggs, bunnies, chicks or something else that is Easter themed.

Remember the spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!
So look around in your stash and see what you have for Easter.

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

Everyone is welcome to play along! Challenge a stamping friend!! If you upload to an online gallery (ie splitcoaststampers or paper craft planet) use keyword CBC115.

The Creative Belli DT has given us some wonderful inspiration so click on the link to see what we all have created. Or you can click on all the names on my sidebar. It will take you right to their blogs.

Now some details on my card: I actually cased myself on this one. I made this original card  last week for the color challenge on splitcoaststampers. It was nominated for the faves of the week ending April 10 on splitcoaststampers.

So I decided to use the layout but with different colors for the Belli challenge. I used Stampin-Up pretty in pink and chocolate chip cardstock and designer paper for my card. My image and sentiment are from the "good egg" set.

I added some felt rick rack and used a Martha Stewart lacy doily punch to complete my card.

Some other challenges for this card:
1.  Raise the bar blog has a "hey chick" challenge. Use chicks on your card.
2.  A spoonful of sugar blog has an "all creatures great and small challenge.
3.  The top tip Tuesday blog has a "spring has sprung" challenge.
4.  The die cut dreams blog has an Easter challenge.
5.  The ooh la la blog has an Easter challenge.
6.  The stamps r us blog has has an Easter challenge.
