Creative Belli Challenge #130- Piercing

Want to be a Belli Girl? That's right, we're having a DESIGN TEAM CALL! We're looking for some fabulous paper crafters to join our team! Please check out our DT Call Post HERE!

Challenge #130 Paper Piercing (poking holes in your paper)

I got out my Ranger supplies to make my card today- Inspired by Terry who is always talking about Grunge Monday- so I checked it out- All Things Tim challenge is to  use the Technique from Tag # 7 from 2009......  I had a few technical difficulties with a few of the products....but was able to complete the challenge.  I used the new Distress Ink for the background in Iced Spruce- I thought it would work perfectly with a winter scene. All of the stamps I used here are from Rogue Redhead- they are having an Anniversary celebration- got this in a bundle!
   After I did the technique, I used a punch from MS for the snowflakes - had to have it and I think it may be the first time I used it.....and the smaller one- I like it so much, I bought two of you ever do that?.......  I took the negative of the punch and sponged through it for the snowflake shadow in the BG.  I used two Technique Junkies techniques for my card- Wisped frames and Stacked Nesties.  I added sparkle with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen.

Be sure to stop by the Creative Belli Blog to see what the other Belli Girls made for your inspiration today....they are such a talented group and I am so humbled to be part of the team.  you upload a card to Splitcoast, PCP, Stamp TV or another online gallery be sure to add CBC130 in the keywords section.

Take a look at what the Creative Belli Designers have done with the piercing challenge!!
