Creative Belli Challenge #128 Use FLower Soft, Felt or Chunky Glitter

 For the bi-weekly Creative Belli Challenge I used Faux Flower Soft (My tutorial HERE).
Here is a close up of the Faux Flower soft and the shimmer:
  I used SU dye inks and sponged on the colors. I added some Copic color on the trees and the grass.  The backgrounds are Technique Junkies UFO's that I did not write on the back and identify- although I know the green was made with Twinkling H2O's.  The image is from McMahon Five Designs. I used the Sketch from Card Patterns.

Here is a tutorial I used for tying a little bow- on a fork. I simply wrapped the twine three times around the fork......

  I am trying to play along-as much as I can- with the Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge on Splitcoaststampers- I picked this image specifically for the theme of  Things are Looking Up- at a Sunset!

The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!  I was happy to use the Nestability for the first time and the brown twine I bough a year ago........it may be the first time I have used it.....

For ideas and inspiration, check out the DT creations:


Also, if you upload a card to any galleries online  to Splitcoast , PCP, Stamp TV or another online gallery be sure to add CBC128 in the keywords section.

Challenges:
Card Patterns- Sketch #136
Anything Goes- Die Cut
Heart Song Inspirations- Use a die cut and sponging
Stamping Sisters in Christ-Anything Goes
Gingersnaps- Shared Moments


***If anyone knows how to help me change my link colors- the blog template I am using does not let me change default link of background colors- and the links are not always letting me change the colors or make them bold- so they do not show up.......  Thanks in Advance!  ***

Thanks for stopping by!
