1-2-3 Jacksonbelle Challenge!

It is time for another Jacksonbelle Embellishements Tuesday challenge. This week is definitely a challenge. Our fellow JB design team member, Michelle, challenged us to a 1-2-3 challenge...1 stamp, 2 embellishements and 3 layers (the base layer is included in the 3). If you decide to play along with us, please use keyword JBE050 when you upload to SCS or PCP.

This was a MAJOR MAJOR challenge for me. To be totally honest I think my card sorta sucks but given the restrictions this was my best of 3 attempts - the other 2 ended up in the trash. To try and give the allusion of extra layers I sponged the edges of my Pink Paislee DP with dark brown ink. I don't know that this gave the look I was intending but I guess it helped. As for the the 2 embellishements, I interpreted this as 2 types so I used some ribbon and some Kaiser pearls. The stamp I used is from Inkadinkado.

Sorry the photo is at a weird angle. The sentiment and ribbon aren't really as crooked as they look in the photo.

For some more (and I'm sure, much better) inspiration check out the blogs of the other JB rockstars:

This card is GORGEOUS! I LOVE that stamp and love the simple, elegant backdrop for it that you created-it really makes it "pop" as the focal point. So, so pretty!

It was definitely a challenge for me too, but yours turned out great. Love that stamp and how you did the ribbon!

Heather, this would be a true challenge for me as well. I love to layer (and layer) my cards & ad ribbon & lots of metal, so I would have struggled with this as well. However, I think you did a fine job accomplishing the challenge! I love how you extended the ribbon off the page. I've never thought to do that!
