Creative Belli Challenge 101 - Embellish with a Number!

Hello there! Happy Wednesday! Hope you are having a wonderful week. Today we have a brand new Creative Belli Challenge for you! We would like you to embellish with a number. Now...don't forget the "spirit" of the Belli challenge is to use something you already have in your stash. We are trying to help you use up what you have...lol. So this week search through that chipboard, rub-ons, brads, etc, and find something with a number on it. Here is what I came up with.I decided to take advantage of this # challenge by making a 1st birthday card. I don't "need" the card until November, but what a great time to get it done! I used the adorable Cocoa mouse with birthday hat image from Sweet 'n Sassy. I colored him with markers, and layered onto this adorable piece of BOY colored birthday hat paper (as a mom of 3 girls blue is a foreign color to me). The PP is actually a "scrap" from the album I made for my nephew, so this is perfect to use for his birthday card! Now...my number embellishment...I pulled out the GIANT tin of chipboard letters and numbers, and dug...yes dug. Why did I have to dig? Well brilliant me decided when I bought the chipboard #'s and letters to punch them all out so that I wouldn't have to try to find something when I needed it. LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!! MISTAKE! Now I can't find what I need at all! So, I haven't touched the giant bin of already punched out chipboard pieces in forever! I think I bought it about 2 years ago. So, after about 10 minutes of searching (no lie) I finally found a #1. And this lovely star was in there too! So I layered the #1 onto the star.

Now it is your turn. Start digging into that giant tin full of chipboard, or whatever you have. We want to see what you come up with. So head on over to the Creative Belli Challenge and link up your number embellished project. Don't forget to check out what the other talented Belli Girls came up with too!
