Jacksonbelle Tuesday

Wahoo! It's Tuesday and time for a really neat challenge by the Jacksonbelle Embellishment Design Team. This week Lynda randomly paired up DT members and our challenge is to CASE a card from the blog or gallery of our partner. How fun is that! We would love to have you play along! If you choose to join us, just pick a card from any of the DT blogs or galleries and have at it! For cards that are uploaded to SCS, please be sure to include JBE011 or if you would rather just link your card to the comments on this post! I'd love to see what you create! Here are the other DT gals that are playing this week:


So for this weeks challenge may "partner in crime" is the very talented Erin McKinney! I love Erin's use of bright colors along with distressed edges- a unique shabby chic look and her LOs are so creative! I was so... excited about this particular challenge! As soon as I knew that I was teamed up with Erin, I started perusing her blog to check out all of the wonderful inspiration which it held. Certainly, the hard part was narrowing it down to only 1 card to CASE. I finally chose this beauty because I absolutely loved this LO! Of course, I took a couple of creative liberties and tweaked it a bit. I truly love the long, slender look of her LO but I happened to have some scraps of this yummy Urban Cosmos PP by Prima that would work perfectly as a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 sized card so I went with that. Also, I flipped it on it's side so that it would go with this cute little Quartet stamp by Inkadinkado. I had had these little guys for a while but had not used them yet (hangs head in shame)! This is really a very straight forward card. The little corner adornment on the bottom right hand corner is 3 photo holders from my HHH with a brad in the center. The little birds are colored with Copic markers and 2 of them are popped for dimension. Well, I've go several other posts to write. Hopefully, they will each magically appear on the correct date! It's ALWAYs A Stampin' Good Time! Take care!
