Creative Belli Challenge #126

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 the design team would like you to use string on your project.

You can use string in a button, make a bird's nest out of it, stem for flowers, tree branches, roof of a house, etc......what ever your little heart desires!! Remember, the spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!

On my card I used bakers twine on my banner sentiment. Sp it doesn't have to be a complicated design to participate in our challenge.

I found this sunflower die-cut and give thanks sentiment in my stash and decided it would make a great card for Thanksgiving. After all  the idea behind the Belli Challenges is to use old and forgotten embellishments.

My designer paper is from the retired Stampin-Up collection "autumn traditions". I kept my layout simple to focus on the sunflower and banner.

That's my card for this challenge. Hope you will join in with us. Check out what the rest of the design team has done with this challenge. It will give you lots of creative ideas.

Check out this sweet picture of my precious granddaughter, Phoenix Daisy. She is 9 months old now and this is her first riding toy.
Her shoes just crack me up.
Drop by tomorrow I will have a peak of a new Christmas stamp set being released by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps this month.
Until next time.....God Bless.
