Belli Challenge #93 - rub-ons

Happy Wednesday! Are you ready for another Belli challenge today? This one is easy: rub-ons!!! Just create something (card, scrap page, box, other 3D item) and add a rub-on (or two or three) to that project to qualify for the Belli Challenge. If you are like me, you've got several packages of rub-ons somewhere in your crafting area that have never been opened. LOL

I opened one such package and used the biggest rub-on (the "celebrate" sentiment) from this package on this fun and summer-y card:

This card literally took me 10 minutes to make. I just got into that groove and it all clicked together just perfectly. The longest part about this card was waiting for the crackle paint to dry on the chipboard circle.

Ya like my ribbon flower? LOL That idea just popped into my head and I thought, hey, why not? I found a chipboard circle in my stash and added a pop-up glue dot to the back. Then I cut small lengths of ribbon and just started pressing them into the glue dot. When I was done, I added another glue dot on top of the one with the ribbon ends pressed into it, and then stuck it on my card. Fun and different, huh? :-)

Wanna see what the other Belli Girls have created? Go check them out on the Belli Challenge blog, and hopefully you will be inspired to create your own project with a rub-on. We'd love to have you enter your creation in our Belli Challenge.

Great card, Holly - very cheery! Love the flower with the crackly center! Guess that's what happens to flowers in Texas in the summer, eh?? ;-)
