Creative Belli Challenge #92 - Flat Embellishments

Hello.  Wow I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since I posted.   Good to be back.  This is Creative Belli Challenge week.  This challenge blog inspires you to use up OLD embellishments you have laying around.  And I have tons of them because I'm a hoarder.  So the Creative Belli Challenges are perfect for me.

This week the challenge is to use FLAT EMBELLISHMENTS and the SKETCH provided over at the Creative Belli Blog.  You can use stickers, rub-ons, die's, or anything else flat you are hoarding.  I chose rub-on sentiments by Making Memories.  There was actually a date on the package.  They are from 2004!  I've been hoarding for a very long time, teehee.


Stamps : Stampers Anonymous (scalloped border collage), Cornish Heritage Farms (polka dots), and Layers of Color Joyful Noise (butterfly) and Nature Walk (swirly)
Ink : Brilliance Rocket Red, VersaMagic Oasis Green.
Quickutz Swirly die
Rub-on Sentiments - Making Memories

I recently placed an order for some of the cool 3-D items over at Creative Cuts and More and decided to sticker one of those up as well. 


This particular gift bag is "Tuck and Close Bag #2-XL ".  I chose Coral - Stardream Chiara.  It's the shimmery pale coral color.  So I selected glittery stickers by K&Company to embellish it.  What I love about Creative Cuts and More is that you get to select from a HUGE variety of paper types and colors.  And with all the pre-scored lines, it took only minutes to create.
See ya next time!

What a pretty card, and gift bag, too. I always want to layer up my cards, so I think I would definitely be challenged by the "flat" part of the challenge, but your rocked it. Love the stamping and love the polka dots. Thanks for playing along with us at the Shabby Tea Room.
