Belli Challenge #87 - Clips and a surprise!

For today's Belli Challenge, we have a new feature to surprise ya with. We have our very first sketch challenge combined with the belli challenge!!! The actual belli challenge is to use clips - swirly clips, paper clips, library clips, whatever you have in your stamping room that is clip-like. Here is our Belli Sketch #1:



Don't you just love that? Our very own Steph Zerbe created this sketch, and I can't wait to see more sketches from this talented gal!

I turned this sketch so that it is vertical, and I went Asian for my Belli card:



See the silver swirls on the ribbon? I threaded the ribbon through some silver swirly clips. Something a little different, ya know? I hope this inspires you to create your own card using the Belli Sketch and clips. Link your card up with the Mr. Linky widget over on the Belli Blog so we can all see what you've created! :-)
