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 or homes! 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 make a project using your WRAPPING PAPER. You can make ANYTHING you wish AND combine challenges with your WRAPPING PAPER and it doesn't even have to be CHRISTMAS! Grab any of your wrapping paper and use it up! Perfect for those left over scraps you have!

Here is what you need to do...
1. Anyone Can Play! Spread the Word! :)
2. Make a completed project with ANY WRAPPING PAPER. Share the link here in the comments linking to my Blog and CBC46. When you post to Splitcoaststampers or to your Blog, be sure and put CBC46 as the KEYWORD and mention of the challenge - with a link!
3. I will do a drawing and the person whose name I draw will get an assortment of Designer Papers!
4. You can have an extra opportunity to win from Lorie Ames if you link your creation here on my Blog AND on Lorie's Blog!

Last week's winner was LUVLEE - check her beautiful project out HERE.
Be on the look out for her to be featured here!

Can you tell what part of my project is wrapping paper? well, I will let you know... It is the Snowman all the way through the square and blue - The wrapping paper matched Pacific Point PERFECTLY!

Here is a few more details for this project:

Stamp Set: Snowflakes by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, All in a Row by SU
Ink: Whisper White Craft, Real Red
Cardstock: Pacific Point, Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: Felt Snowflakes, Dew Drops, Mini Glue Dots, White grosgrain, Coluzzle, Paper Piercing Tool, Dimensionals

Before you go, I will leave you with a cute poem someone sent me this week, my husband has no sense of humor and did not laugh at this. LOL I thought it was funny, although I did not totally agree with it. ;)

'Twas the night before Christmas,
I'm glued to the tree.
I'm wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be cardstock or chipboard or lace?
"Or a Cricut," I said, with a smile on my face.
And that's when I heard him, "Hi Santa!" I said.
"You know....good little girls should be in their beds."
"I know I should Santa, and now I've got caught.
But I was just so excited to see what you brought."
"Well, let's take a look in this room where you work."
He shook his head quickly, and left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim as he put it in gear...
"You've got enough stuff, I'll see you next year!"
Keep Smiling!
Thank you for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!

Love this card! The snowman is adorable and you did such a great job incorporating into this card! I combined CBCC #19 with this challenge and made 2 cards. Have a cold so they aren't that much different... Something about a cold just keeps your brain from working right!
