Belli Challenge #57 - new stamps!

This week's Belli Challenge is to create something with the two new stamp sets that Chris and Courtney released at Sweet N Sassy this week. Aren't they beautiful? Chris illustrated the birds on the branch (called His Eye is on the Sparrow) and Courtney drew the beautiful Easter Lily.

Chris stamped images from both sets and sent them to all of the Belli Girls. We had to pick a color that we rarely use, and incorporate that into our card with the new stamps. I don't use orange, so I made the lily orange with some bold tropical touches. I also rarely use Garden Green, so I used that with the birds.

Starting today, we have a NEW belli challenge blog!!! Click on Belli Challenge and it will take you to our brand new blog where you can see all the artwork for the week in one place. We will also have a Mr. Linky at the bottom of the post for the week so you can play along with us. Just enter your name and the link to your card (please enter the specific link, not just a general link to your blog or gallery), and we will all be able to click and view your artwork.

Both cards are just lovely Holly. Your Tiger Lily is colored beautifully and perfect. The birds is so soft and pretty never thought of using brown on them. After I did mine I thought of red for Cardinals. Also love your scalloped edge it really added to the card.
