Creative Belli Challenge #91

Hello there. Today is my first "official" week as part of the Belli Design Team...and what an honor! This week's sponsor is Sew Many Cards...stop on over and check them out. They have some great digi images for sale in their store. The challenge this week is "Hole Punches". You can use hole punches any way you want on your card or project. That means...you could punch a hole and put a brad or eyelet in it. You could punch a hole and thread ribbon through it. You could punch a hole with a boarder punch. You get the idea...just punch a hole some how and some where on your project. While you are punching holes...don't forget the "spirit" of the Belli Challenge...use what we HAVE in our crafty hands already...try NOT to use something new. Be sure to head back to the Creative Belli Blog and link up your project so we can all see your work too!

As you can see I punched holes and added some eyelets I have had laying around. I used this great digi image from our sponsor Sew Many Cards called Olliver the Owl Celebrates. I colored him with colored pencils and added some crystal effects to his balloon. (A little hard to see from the photo, but I wanted a shiny balloon.) The sentiment is from the same digi set. I added a little blue eyelet (hole) to the "i" in birthday too. This is a very CAS card, but I thought it was perfect for a man...which is who I had in mind when making this. My FIL's birthday is this month, and I thought a nice simple card was perfect for him.

We would love to see your "holey" cards too, so be sure to play along with this week's Belli Challenge and link your creations so we can see your take on hole punches.

Very cute card! Those little embellishments, like eyelets so often really make the card pop don't they? I'll have to see what I can come up with for this one.
