We interupt this "Twilight" break...

...to bring you this Jacksonbelle Tuesday challenge!! Every Tuesday the Jacksonbelle Embellishments DT brings you a challenge. This week the challenge is to use October Afternoon products -stamps, paper or BOTH! As always, you don't have to use JBelle products to play along, but if you don't have any why not click here and check it out? If you post to SCS, you can use the keyword, JBE036 so we can find them!

My card uses the FAB October Afternoon paper from the Weather Vane line called Sweater Weather. For those of you new to OA paper, it is thick and double sided! I loved the soft blue tones of this paper and paired it with Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and Very Vanilla. The stamp is from Prima -yep, they have stamps too, and is called Giraffe. I colored the image with a couple Copic markers. The sentiment is from Verve Stamps, Family Phrases. After gluing everything down, I took my paper piercer, made 2 holes and then tied some silver cord around his neck. I then tied some more cord around each side of the sentiment panel to balance out the design. The stars were punched out with a combination of the large and small SU! star punches and the mini one is unknown.

This card uses this week's fabulous sketch by Jen, one of her Sketches For You To Try! She posts a great sketch every Saturday!

Here are some of the supplies I used.
