An October Afternoon - JBelle Challenge

Happy Tuesday!! We have another challenge for you to try over at Jacksonbelle Embellishments!! The challenge this week is to use products from October Afternoon or Pink Paislee :) If you have anything at all from either of these companies, we'd really LOVE for you to play along with us! Be sure to use keyword JBE064 when uploading to SCS or you can link your card to the challenge blog!

So I used some of this awesome paper from October Afternoon (love this stuff!) and I combined it with a new blog challenge that one of our very own Rockstars, Mitzi Koons has just issued called the Greeting Card Challenge! It's a really good one you guys, so go take a look at the inspired piece and see her beautiful creation!

More about my card: I stamped this tree from Thoughts and Prayers (SU!) onto the OA paper, and then I outlined the white clouds with clear stickles. Here's where the inspiration part comes in (from her challenge card). I decided to tie hearts in the tree and have them swinging in the clouds. Of course, I had to add stickles to the hearts as well! ;P After the glitter glue dried I stitched the layers with my sewing machine and tied some ribbons and added a charm & brads.

See what the other JBelle Rockstars have created!!
Tobi Crawford / Stephanie Hargis / Mitzi Koons / Loretta Lock / Jimmi Mayo / Bethany Paull / Michelle Philippi / Carly Robertson / Trudee Sauer / Shemaine Smith / Lynda Benden / Melissa Bove / Jennifer Buck / Jill Dunn / AJ Otto / Heather Lee-Reppen / Lindsey Botkin *Owner*

Product of the Week at Jacksonbelle:

Provocraft Cuttlebug folders & dies

Thanks for dropping in today! Hope you'll join in the challenge, or just enjoy hopping to see all the wonderful creations out there, but whatever you do... stay cool!! (suppose to be in the 100's all week here!)
