Belli Challenge #82 - glitter and rhinestones



Today's Belli Challenge is all about glitter and rhinestones. You know you have some glitter somewhere. I bet you even have some rhinestones or other crafty bling hiding in your craft drawers. Pull them out and play with them, and join in our challenge this week.

For my card, I used a new scrapblock from Cornish Heritage Farms called Love. There's all kinds of sweet sentiments and words on this stamp and some are distressed and some are solid. I just love the mix of fonts and words on this scrapblock. Look closely at the crown on my card, and you will see the "jewels" in the crown. I also have some under the "mine" in the second heart.

Some of you might be asking, why purple for a Valentine's card? Why not? LOL I had already done some red and pink cards, and I needed a change from that. So the purple cardstock just sort of jumped into my hands. LOL

How about some more inspiration? Let's go see what the Belli Girls have created over on the Belli Challenge blog. Pull out your glitter and/or rhinestones and play along with us today. :-)

Great card, Holly. I like the non-traditional color scheme and the way you used the hearts for your sentiment. That key charm is the perfect belli!

Love the fun way you did that "B". I hit some wrong button on my computer and this is duplicated that is why. I love the colors and that paper is a great find!
