Creative Belli #120- The letter "G"

  My Blog Candy post is HERE thru 6/23 at 10PM CDT

Creative Belli Challenge #120 - the letter G 

                              The inside of my Gate ford card:
                      Tutorial for a gate fold card HERE.

   For the Creative Belli challenge- you have 2 weeks to create a new project that features an embellishment that begins with the letter G. Think about glitter, a gift card holder, a gift bag, Glimmer Mist, Old Glory (4th of July projects), green rhinestones, whatever you've got on hand.

  The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!

"G" on the above card- Gate fold card, Glamorous Lady, Glitter, Green rhinestones and Green cardstock.  I used 'Sassy Hippo' a digital image by Fairydoodler available at McMahon Five Designs for my card. I colored her with Copic Markers and added Stardust Gelly Roll pen for shimmer. The DSP is Basic Grey. The Glitterstrip is a Technique Junkies Technique called Glitter Roll (I used Certainly Celery cardstock and white glitter) . I added green rhinestones for a bit more glitz. The rhinestones, glitter and ribbon are my forgotten embellishments.
 The sentiment is from Create with TLC.
