Belli Challenge DAY - It's Wednesday!

Are ya'll ready for another Belli Challenge? I can't hear you...was that a YES!

This weeks Belli challenge is to create a card, scrapbook page or project using wood. Here is a tutorial on SCS for making faux wood. Click here.

For my card below, I used a stamp from shirleys2girls called Cat on the Fence (SG 603). I am such an animal lover and love these stamps!

My card today is a 5X5. I used some delish DP from Bo Bunny and paired that with SU green galore and SU Close to Cocoa. The card base is white neenah classis solar. The DP was sewn onto the close to cocoa and matted on the white. The green galorie I ran through my cuttlebug with the swiss dots embossing folder. I left a little at the end where I could stamp my sentiment. I created my wood frame using the SCS tutorial. I then paper pieced the fence using the same technique. I colored in my image with my copics and cut out my cat and his paws to give him dimension over the fence! Isn't he just too cute!?!

Head over right now to the Belli Challenge Blog to see all the lovely Belli Ladies inspirations to get your mojo going. We can't wait to see what you come up with. So come and play with us!
