I created this card for this week's belli challenge over at the Creative Belli Challenge blog. This blog was just recently taken over by the owner of Heart Song Designs, Leah Cornelius, and I'm so happy for her! For those of you who don't know already, Leah is in the midst of adopting an Ethiopian boy, and she will be using all proceeds from sales at Heart Song Designs to help fund this miracle. So please, check out the store and inspiration blog to make a purchase today!The Creative Belli Challenge blog was created to help us use up all those old and forgotten tools and embellishments we all have hanging around. This week's challenge is "Royal" in honor of the upcoming nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton this weekend. For this challenge we were to use our fleur de lis, diamonds, jewels, princess, crowns, tiaras, the color purple, gold, etc.
I used the three jewels at the bottom and the color purple. I could say I used gold, because my picture looks like the mats are gold, but sadly I didn't have any to use. Those mats are actually green.
The image I used was a birth flower, February Iris, image from Heart Song Designs. My mom loved irises, so I figured I'd make a Mother's Day card with this image.
