BELLI CHALLENGE #84 - RIBBONS!

Hello my friends! Today is Belli Challenge Day!!! Todays Belli Challenge is to make a card using RIBBON! Well, you know the Belli Challenge is intended to use what things you have laying around that you haven't used in awhile...























This is a retired Vintage Violet Stitched Ribbon from SU, one of my favorites... I did use it recently HERE, however, I haven't used it in AGES besides that card, so that still counts, right? ;)

I used Technique Junkies Airbrushed Markers technique from the most current and WONDERFUL newsletter! I didn't follow the directions exactly, but did more of a reverse on the first step...

Here are the details:
This week's Sponsor is Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and this is their ADORABLE digi!
Cardstock: Coordinations, White
Ink: Copics
Accessories: Ribbon Vintage Violet, Top Note Die from SU, Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack, Dimensionals... Die cuts from Creative Cuts and More!

Check out our talented Belli Design Team Members projects this week!
One more note before I part... Today is Weigh In Day and I am down 2 more pounds! I have lost a total of 44 pounds as of this week! My next "small" goal is to lose another 18 pounds by my husband's birthday... I reached a BIG milestone this week! I am no longer in the 200 pound mark! I am now UNDER 200 pounds! I haven't been in ONE-DERLAND for over 15 years! Now - I need help, can anyone help me find the OOMPH to exercise? I haven't been doing much exercise or working out! I want to thank you for your continued encouragement!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a blessed day!

Great card, Chris! Your bunny is adorable and the background is terrific!

And WAY TO GO on the weight loss journey! You should feel really good about your progress. As for exercising...it's a head game. I just try to remind myself how good it feels when I've accomplished a workout. Good luck - take baby steps!
