Oh Nuts!....Creative Belli "S"

Hi there. Today we have a brand new challenge for you over at the Creative Belli Challenge. This time our challenge is the Letter "S". We challenge you to dig up some embellishments that begin with the letter "S"...yes...dig them up, don't go buy something new! Grab those spots, stripes, swirls, stars, stickles, slides, etc...you get the idea. Here is what I came up with for this one. Isn't this little "S"quirel so cute???!!! This little guy if from Eureka Stamps, and is called Lg. Nutty Squirrel. He is also available in a smaller stamp. Well, I inked him up, and colored him with watercolor crayons. Then I fussy cut him out layered onto the green "S"wirly PP from Imaginisce. Next I used some of PP from the same line to cut some "S"quares, and layered them. I stamped the sentiment, "Oh Nuts" onto the red "S"quare. Then I used a ribbon "S"lide, which I have had, and never touched one of these in my life...lol. I "S"lid that onto some ribbon from Maya Road, and layered along the bottom. Last I added some "S"tickles to the acorn tops.
Gotta love some "S"parkle! Well now it is your turn. First, head on over to the Creative Belli Blog, and see what the other ladies have come up with for your inspiration. Then grab your "S" embellishments, and play along. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Wonderful "S" card. You were very creative using the "squirral" for your "s". Your sparkle really works too.
