belli challenge 31

Good morning everyone! Today is Belli Challenge day and I've skated in just under the rule guidelines for my submission. What is normally something very easy for me to do became more difficult when I chose the boy in this set to use for the challenge today. Today's challenge is baubles and bling and as a special treat we got to use an image from our very own Chris Dickinson's newly design stamp set called Child of God. This set is SO cute (from what I can tell from the few images that I received )! Can you see why I had a little bit of a problem with baubles and bling on this card? Well, I did find some rhinestones in just the right color and used them in the corner of my patterned paper. Yay, me! LOL! I have also heard through the grapevine (okay Chris herself! LOL!) that Chris has a second set that she will be debuting on Sept 1 through Sweet N Sassy Stamps as well. Exciting!

Onto the deets of the Belli Challenge. Each week, Chris tries to give us a challenge that will get us using things we have lying around our stamp rooms! With a constant flow of new things coming out, we tend to forget about the other things we have and they quickly become clutter! Come join us in the Belli Challenge and be sure to post your link to Chris's website!

This Weeks Belli Challenge is baubles and bling! You don't have to think just sparkle. Think hardware, clips, or anything that gives your card/project a little extra zing! Don't forget to link your card to Chris's blog (see above or below links) for a chance to win a pack of patterned paper from her! And here are the rest of the players for this week...

Okay, I may be stupid but I cannot find where Chris' first set is. Is it still something we can preview and buy? I would love to see the other images and sentiments in the set and possibly buy it.
