Creative Belli Challenge - altered item

Happy Wednesday! We're having a heatwave a tropical heatwave! Is it HOT where you are? ugh! Better stay inside and stamp, huh? lol

We have a new Creative Belli Challenge for you!!! We are altering an item we have laying around the house! I decided to get a head start on Christmas gifts (that's why I used darker colors, not summery colors) This is a gift set with candle & 4 matching note cards.




I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never
walk in darkness but will have the light of life. ~John 8:12

Stamps: only the Thank You sentiment from SU! warmest regards set
scripture: CG
Paper: SU! cs, DP ???
Other: MS border punch, Offray ribbon,
paper flowers, Sizzix scallop oval.


This was a fun & easy make! I hope you'll come play with us over the next 2 weeks!
Check out all the fantabulous creations from the rest of the ever-so-talented Belli girls...
