Belli Challenge #135


How is your week going?  It's humpday, so we've only got two more days until the weekend.  Yay!  Today I have my next project for the Creative Belli challenge to share with you.  This challenge is: Frames.  You can alter a frame, or frame something on a layout or card, or use a frame in anything you want to create.  The idea is to create something using your neglected, hoarded or unused stash.  You can find all of the details for this challenge HERE

For my project this week, I decided to alter a frame.  I seldom do anything but cards these days, so it was a nice change to create this.  I used an old book page as my background paper, then stamped my flourishes randomly around the edges.  I added my lace, ribbon bow, and flowers and was done.  I had hoped to do this as a gift for my sister, before Christmas, but didn't get around to it.  I know she'll love it.  The ribbon, lace and stamps have been in my stash for a couple years, so I was happy to break them out and use them.

If you haven't seen what the other ladies have created at the Belli blog, you should go check them out.  They're gorgeous!

Back soon with another something crafty!
