Hello! Today is Belli Challenge Day! What is the Belli Challenge you ask? Each week, we try to give you a challenge that will use things we have lying around your stamp rooms! With a constant flow of new things coming out, we tend to forget about the other things we have and they quickly become clutter!

This week, our challenge is to create something with SNOW! 
This can include stamps, ribbons, brads, buttons, glitter, patterned paper, chipboard, stickers - anything that is SNOW themed. It must be a NEW project!

The card I created uses the Glossy Gesso technique from Technique Junkies Newsletter from the December/ January 2011 newsletter. 

Here are some more details: 
Stamp Set: Sweet 'n Sassy Snowman and Snowflakes
Cardstock: Paper Temptress Black Licorice, White, Red
Creative Inspiration Paints: Garnet, Coal, Silver
Accessories: Gesso, Sponge, Aquapainter, Red grosgrain, Felt snowflakes, Glimmer Mist, Viva Pearl, Cuddlebug snow flake folder

Be sure to check out our other talented Belli Challenge Designers! 

Thank you for stopping by! Have a blessed day!!
