#174 Stars @ Creative Belli -GDT

Good morning all! 
I'm a very lucky girl today! 

I am a Guest over at 

The challenge this fortnight is ....  
#174 - Stars 
you must have 1 or more stars on your project

If you are not familiar with the Creative Belli Challenge
The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments! 

So with old and forgotten in my mind for this challenge, I knew I had to go rummaging through my chipboard stash and pull out one of the Kaisercraft Stars that I brought back when Noah built the ark.  Stars just scream Christmas to me so that is where Mojo took me.  And on finding my way out of the back room I stopped and raided my box of Prima flowers and stash of Christmas decorations, so everything for this project was stuff I had on hand and nothing was purchased! So love those projects! 

As mentioned above, I raided the old Christmas decoration box and from there I found the Angel, the flowers, butterfly and other embellishments are all Prima, and the sentiment was computer generated.  I inked distressed the edges of the star with TH Distress Inks, added a little brown ribbon from my stash to hang the star with and now, I just have to decide weather to hang this on the front door or in the hallway once Christmas is nearer.   I am so in love with the finish of this little piece and so happy that this one I do not have to part with lol 

The Beli Girls and I would love if you played along with us too!  We would love to see your creations featuring a star or more so be sure to link them up and play along with us :))

Wendy Swenne said...

Wow, this is just beautiful. You can't start early enough on the christmas cards ;)
Love the design and the colors. And that sentiment is sooooo true. I've never really celebrated christmas with gifts. Only 2 times, because the family of my boyfriends years ago, did celebrate it with gifts. But I don't see a connection why Christmas and presents go together (maybe I'm just such a down-to-earth kinda Dutch girl LOL).

Thanks so much for sharing your art with us on WAW.


Ellen said...

Wow, this is really a great creation. Love the sentiment...

groetjes, Ellen
