Belli Challenge # 51

I had bunches of fun with this one. This week's Belli challenge was to create a card from well used stamps, that have not been inked for awhile. I chose to use SU Mini Mates, and Happy Hearts. Both of these sets had lots of ink on them over the years. Sad to say with new things coming out all the time they were on the shelve collecting the very best of antique dust!
Other things used in this card:
Bittersweet paper by BasicGrey
Label Two, and Large Square Spellibinders die, half pearl beads, chocolate grosgrain ribbon, lots of pop dots!
I ran the square and label die together through the Cuttlebug, then ran them both through again to emboss them.
Check out Chrissy's site for more info on the Belli Challenges
Tomorrow is weigh in day. I should have hit that 60 pound weight loss mark. So I'll be posting weight loss blog candy. Check back later in the evening Thursday. Should have it posted by then.
