Creative Belli Challenge #124

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 we are using gingham. It can be stamped, patterned paper or ribbon.

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
Drop by the Creative Belli blog to see what the rest of the Belli girls design team has come up with. You will not be disappointed.
For my card, I decided to use red gingham patterned paper. My sweet bear image is a new line of digital images from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps- the Rhubarb collection. There are 25 of these cute little guys. You can see all of them by clicking here.

I colored him with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Since Rhubarb is picking apples I cut out a few from some old designer paper I had. I added some white rick rack and used a cuttlebug folder to add texture to my brown panel.

The sentiment is also from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps and they go along with the Rhubarb images.

Well, that my card for today. So until next time........God Bless

Some other challenges:
1Try It on Tuesday blog has an anything goes challenge.
2.  Use it on Tuesday blog has an Indian Summer challenge. This represents harvest to me. My little bear is harvesting apples. All the patterned paper I use is over 2 years old-I cut my apples from the patterned paper. The embossing on my brown panel is done with a cuttlebug folder that is over a year old.
3.   Bling it on blog has an ABC challenge. I have an apple, a bear and a circle (sentiment).
