Belli Challenge #67 - Father's Day!

Today's Belli Challenge is to create a Father's Day card using the sketch you see below:



This sketch comes to us courtesy of The Sweet Stop, the sketch challenge blog from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. Korin from Sweet N Sassy Stamps generously donated this adorable Fishing Bear digi stamp for the Belli Girls to use on their cards. I just had to play with this cutie.



I used a sheet of designer paper from the Basic Grey Archaic collection for the background, some twill ribbon, some clear Dew Drops, and some Rustic Buttons from PaperTrey Ink for this card. The fishing bear image is colored with various Copic markers. The inside of the card says "Happy Father's Day."

Go check out the other cards that the Belli Girls did over on the Belli Blog. While you're there, go check out the posting about the Design Team Call. If you have ever wanted to be a Belli Girl, now's your chance! Go read the rules HERE and apply! :-)

Now, stay tuned for the next couple days. I'll be posting two more Father's Day cards that I've got ready to go. If you need more inspiration, come on back and see what I've got for you.
