Creative Belli - Jewelry

Happy Wednesday!

It's been two weeks already and it's time for another fun Creative Belli challenge!  This time our theme is Jewelry...interpret as you please!

I used a vintage clip-on earring I had found at a flea market this past summer!  


Vintage Image: The Graphics Fairy (printed in sepia)
Stamps: SU! refuge & strength (border leaves)
Papers: SU! cs, BasicGrey dps
Other: MS pearls, lace, seam binding, Nesties
hand-dyed doily from Mary Duffek

The Belli challenges are always so much fun for me.  I'm trying to let my creativity go, haha, though I'm not quite sure I like giving it free range!  

I have a ton of lace, hardly ever touched.  So in keeping with my resolution to use up my stash, I'll be digging into the 'lace box' a bit more in the coming days!

The rest of the Belli girls have done a fabulous job with this challenge, check out their creations and the newly named Belle of the Belli @ the Creative Belli Challenge blog!

Blessings!
