CBC82 For All You Do, CC252 Treemendous

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

I have two cards to share with you today!!!

First up -  my sweet blogging friend Robin Kirkpatrick invited me to be a Guest Designer for today's Belli Challenge - CBC82. Thank you Robin for inviting me!!!

The Challenge is all about adding *Glitter and Rhinestones* to your card or project...how could I have said no to this awesome Challenge - right?!?

Here is my take on it......




I couldn't help myself but to use the awesome SU Set - For All You Do again :).  If you missed the cards I've made with  this Set then click HERE and HERE.

The colors were inspired by a color combo from the SU Catalog - Real Red, Crushed Curry and Basic Gray. Aren't they fun together???

I added some Dazzling Diamond Glitter and Silver Pearls to the flower petals and the embossed
butterfly. Hope you like it???

Please make sure to check the creative Belli Challenge Design Team - AnneCeal, ChrisDebbie, FernHolly, JennyJoan, Robin and Steph.

Hope you all join us in playing this fun Challenge?!? Have fun!!!

*****************************************

My second card was created  for yesterday's CC252 - using Bermuda Bay, Certainly Celery, Handsome Hunter.  The dessert option was to add Pink in any other form then using Cardstock!!!

These were some really tough colors, but I really like how they look together!!! Betty just knows how to mix them up!!!




I used a this cute Treemendous Stamp Set from There She Goes.

The tree itself was inked in  Handsome Hunter. The little flowers were inked randomly with the CC colors and  I added some small Silver Pearls in the center. To finish the card off I added the Melon Mambo Ribbon with a White Button and Pink Scrap Floss. Voila!!!

Hope you get a chance to try these awesome colors yourself!?!?

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by today!!!

Fabulous cards, my friend! Love your glittery flowers and the way you popped them up. Thank you so much for being our guest designer this week - you're the best!

Your color challenge card is fantastic - the little flowers are a great way to incorporate the challenge colors . The silver pearls in the centers are perfect. You are single-handedly keeping the silver pearl manufacturers in business!!!

Oh Silke! I am thrilled that you are our guest designer for the Belli Challenge this week. I've loved your clean and elegant style for several years now, and I'm just tickled to death that you created one for the Belli Challenge.

Your flower card is gorgeous. I love those tiny silver pearls on the flowers and butterfly! I had to peek at your color challenge card, and I see more of those beautiful silver pearls on that tree. Wow - love those tiny flowers on the tree in those bright colors. I needed that pop of color on this gray and dreary day.
