Belli Challenge #129 - 1234

Good morning! This is my card for this week's Belli Challenge. We are doing a unique twist this time - it's called 1234. Basically you use a certain number of certain items so they fit into the 1234 group. For example, you could use 1 ribbon, 2 brads, 3 stamps, and 4 sheets of paper. You decide what embellishments go with each number.

For my card, I used:

1 - stamp (The Blessing of Peace from I Brake for Stamps)
2 - die cuts (Labels 17 - Spellbinders, Holly Flourish - Cheery Lynn Designs from Classy Cards n Such)
3 - flowers (Wild Orchid Flowers from I Brake for Stamps)
4 - sheets of designer paper (Season's Greetings - Echo Park)

My background is a technique that I created called Collaged Circles. If you are a subscriber to the Technique Junkies newsletter, you can look up the tutorial to see how to create your own background. :-)

Isn't that a fun challenge? You could have all kinds of combinations. Why don't you give it a whirl? We'd love to see what you come up with! Check out what the other Belli Girls created over on the Belli Challenge blog and then share your creation(s) with us. :-)
