Belli Challenge #43

This week's Belli Challenge is to use cord on your card or project. Can you see the cord on the right side of this card? There are three strands of gold cord pulled together, with a bow on top. It sort of looks like a wrapped Christmas present, doesn't it? I wanted this to sort of coordinate with the wrapped presents in the Stampavie image.

I have fallen in love with the Sarah Kay images made by Stampavie. They are just darling! They remind me so much of my childhood, growing up with Holly Hobbie images everywhere.

Play along with us and make a card with some cord on it. Here's some inspiration for you:

Rochelle Wick
Debby McGivillary
Shelly Koskinen
Jennifer Greco
Chris Dickinson
Christi Thorsen
Ceal Pritchett
Lorie Ames
Courtney Fowler
Danita Hollander
Joan Ervin
Sarah Anderson

Stamps: Christmas Magic by Stampavie
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black
CS: Artichoke, Basic Black, Whisper White, Basic Grey Wassail dsp
Other: copic markers, gold cord (retired SU), green metallic ribbon (Michaels)
