Creative Belli Challenge Guest Design Card!



Let's celebrate!
I'm the guest designer this week for the Creative Belli challenge#63 which is dry embossing! I was so excited when Chris contacted me! Thank you Chris!!!!
I had this card idea and was going to make a pretty girlie pink birthday card, however my gorgeous teen daughter reminded me not all girls are "into" pink! Ok, I can handle that, though with a male ratio of 2:1 in our house it's fun to make pink girlie cards!!! Oh, well, switch gears...so I choose these colors to go along with the Res-Q challenge colors. The have some different recipes to choose from this week for their challenge so hop over and check it out! I also thought since I was using this DRSdesigns Cutie Pie Kid I would participate in their birthday creations challenge this week! This cute image was from the lovely Vicki over on Stamped Smiles....thank you so much Vicki!!!! The sketch was inspired by Friday Sketchers #47!
I CB'd the baja breeze card base and sponged bashful blue to enhance the design. I punched a barely banana scalloped circle then attached a green galore circle and finally a white swiss dot CB'd circle. Cutie Pie is colored with matching SU markers, cut & popped. Glitter was added to the balloon and yellow accents. Matching ribbon and glitter brads finish off this non-pink girlie card!
Again, I'd like to thank Chris and the Creative Belli DT for allowing me to share your space this week! Blessings!

Ahh this is so cute Maria, congratulations on your guest dt position. I'm loving that green. My 10 year old daughter Jessica would agree with your daughter, she doesnt' like pink at all, in fact she doesn't like dress's, skirts or anything remotely girly, drives me crazy at times. Donna x
