Jacksonbelle Tuesday

Wahoo! Tuesday once again and time for another Jacksonbelle Embellishment Design Team challenge. This week it is Anything Goes- you gotta love that! We would be thrilled to have you play along so if you do, please be sure to use JBE008 in your keycode when you upload to the gallery at SCS. Looking forward to seeing your wonderful cards! Be sure to take a look at the other DT members blogs to see what they came up with today!

First off, a quick disclaimer. My challenge card did not photograph very well. IRL, the yellow in the little bird is not as harsh. Hopefully, tomorrow I can take a better photo in the daylight to exchange for this one.

My Harmony Prima PP had been neglected for a while so I decided to pair it up with this new little Inka bird & frame stamp. After coloring the bird with Copic Markers, I die cut the image with Nestabilities and added a SU rub-on phrase inside the frame. The "thanks" sentiment and the little dotted flourish and flowers are rub-ons from the same pack (Love & Happiness from Sale-a-bration.) I had the most fun with the Prima flowers. The large blue flower is, also, from the Harmony line and the little mesh flowers (are those cute, or what) are brand new from my lss, Once Upon a Scrapbook. The centers are clear button from AL topped with a little piece cut from Prima lace. FUN, FUN! I stamped the kraft colored piece of PP with a CHF Polka Dot backgrounder (I so {{{{LOVE}}}} the CHF backgrounders) using MM paint. The rest is pretty self explanatory. TFL!

I got a bit of a late start this evening on my card because we celebrated Mary Elizabeth's 11th birthday this evening. Our family along with her 3 bffs went to the local Mexican restaurant (ME's fav.) for supper. It was truly a delightful, fun time for everyone. Just wanted to share a couple of photos of my girls when the wait staff came out and placed a huge sombrero on the birthday girl and sang to her! Feel free to click on the pics to see the fun the girls were having!Be sure to stop by tomorrow for Way to Go Wednesday. It's ALWAYS a Stampin' Good Time! Take care!
