Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge!

It's that time again! Time for the Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge. This week the challenge is to use vellum on your project. We'd love for you to play along. If you do, be sure to leave us a link to your project on the challenge post on the JB blog and/or use keyword JBE075 when you upload to SCS or PCP.

First off, I have to tell you...I don't use vellum. I think this might actually be the very first ever card with vellum posted on my blog. I'm actually surprised that I even had any to use. After struggling for hours (literally - over 5 hours) I was finally able to come up with a card that I don't like but am not embarassed to post on my blog. I started off by trying to stamp on vellum and color an image and then I tried it again and finally after spending 4 hours and throwing my card in the garbage, I decided to just emboss the vellum with a Cuttlebug folder. Much easier. Like I said, I still am not thrilled with this card but I know when to say when.

I used tons of awesome Jacksonbelle goodies on my card....Basic Grey DP and Basic Grey bling flower centers, Shimmerz paint, MM trim, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder and Martha Stewart leaf punch.

Oh and speaking of Shimmerz...ALL Shimmerz and Stickles are on sale at Jacksonbelle. It is a great time to stock up for all of your upcoming holiday projects!

I'm sitting here thinking you didn't use the MS leaf punch like you said...then I looked closer at the leaves...they looked like they were made of fabric - - way to work the paper on those leaves - they look fantastic!
