Belli Challenge #85 - butterflies and dragonflies

Today's Belli Challenge is all about butterflies and dragonflies. We also have a wonderful sponsor who sent all the Belli Girls some stamps to use for this challenge. QKR Stampede is a rubber stamp company featuring over 10,000 designs. Wow! I chose to work with these adorable rag dolls as well as a beautiful sentiment in the cards below.



I stamped these ragdolls with black Memento ink and colored them in with Copic markers. I then punched out the butterflies from the same plaid paper that you see behind the stamped image. This will be a sweet card to send "just because."




For this card, I stamped the sentiment directly on the designer paper with Eggplant ink. I punched out a bunch of butterflies from three different sheets of designer paper and just had fun arranging them on this card. I love this sentiment and I can send this to anyone and everyone just to put a smile on their face.

We have Jess Stockmeyer as our Guest Designer on the Belli Challenge blog today as well. She was a guest designer for us a few months ago, and it's a great pleasure to have her back with us again.
