Belli Challenge #52 Let's Bake a Cake!!!

A card cake that is. This week marks one year for Chrissy's Belli Challenges. I haven't been in on them from the beginning. I just started on the team this month, but it's been fun! I'm looking forward to her second year of them.

Holly sent us a list of cake ingredients. We had to select 5 of them. After everyone had picked cake items we were then sent a second list. On this list were the stamping ingredients that we needed to use on the card.

I selected: Baking Soda, Cinnamon, Powdered Sugar, Eggs, and Cocoa powder. So from the list I knew in my card I had to use: Beads, Sponging, Embossing Powder, Scallops, and Hardware. WHEW what a list!!!!! It was challenging, but I did it.

Base of the card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 black cardstock. Layers, Perfect Plum, and White. The main image is made with

Roses in Winter. You can see the embossing on the leaves that are popped on the the main image, on the leaf punch on the inside of the card, and the edges of the base card. Hard ware is a silver hinge I bought at Pat Cantan's. Looking for different hardware to use on your creations? Check out the section at the craft store for wood working. Lots of great hinges, and other fun things to work with. Also used two brads on the front image. Needed to do this so the front would open. Scallops are from Classic Round Large Spellbinders. The beads were leftovers I had from a swap I was in years ago. I used purple twine to thread the beads on. Sponging was done around the all the edges. So that's my card. I had a ton of fun with this challenge!!! Want to see more? Go visit Chrissy's blog

We were under a winter storm advisory last night. There is lots of snow on the ground. I have to leave early for work today so I can clean off the car. Stay warm!!!!
