Creative Belli Challenge #103

Click here for the SNSS blog hop

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. It's time for another Creative Belli Challenge. The challenge this time is paper piercing your project.

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.

There is also a design team call out for the Creative Belli Blog. Would you like to be a Belli Girl? Check out all the details here.

For my card I used a spellbinder poinsettia die. My old embellies are my rhinestones and my designer paper.  I did my piercing on the sentiment layer. That was cut with the spellbinders rectangles die.

The sentiment is from the Our Daily Bread designs set "worship the Lord". I used my stampa-ma-jig to line it up vertically.

I added some cherry cobbler seam binding from Stampin-Up to complete my card.

The layout is from the ODBD blog. It's their Saturday shining the light challenge #83. It was a fun sketch to work with and gave me a chance to make another Christmas card.

Well that's my card for today. Time to close this post.
