What is the Belli Challenge you ask?

Each week, I try to give us a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms! With a constant flow of new things coming out, I tend to forget about the other things I have and they quickly become clutter!

This Weeks Belli Challenge is to use PEARLS...You can Pearl Brads, Pearl Paint, Pearls from the Pretties Kits, Pearl Clips, Pearl Stick ons, ANYTHING PEARLY you can USE IT! Create ANY kind of project using something with a pearl!

Here is what you need to do. Make a completed project embellishing your work with your PEARLS. Share the link here in the comments linking to my Blog and CBC39. When you post to Splitcoaststampers or to your Blog, be sure and put CBC39 as the KEYWORD and mention of the challenge - with a link! I will do a random drawing for all participants and have a special pack of assorted Designer Papers for the winner! Last weeks winner is Anna Banana, you can see her FABULOUS creation HERE.
Originally for my project I had this in my head.... One layer with White cardstock then a row of pearls and words - the cardstock was half embossed with my Cuddlebug. Slowly, the urge to layer and add things over took me and this is my end result. It came on ONE slow layer and embellishment at a was all Froo-Froo-ed up and Chrissy-ized. LOL
This is what I used for my project...
Stamp Sets: Thanksgiving Scriptures and Autumn Blessings by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
Cardstock and Ink: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip DP, Pink Pirhuoette
Accessories: Pretties Kit, Mini GLue Dots, half inch circle brads, Chocolate Polytwill, Nestibilities, Cuddlebug, Snowflake folder, Scallop Edge Punch, Snowflake buttons
