Celebrate Simply!

It's Tuesday and time for another Jacksonbelle Embellishments challenge! Nothing very official today, it's kind of a Free For All challenge with a lean towards the About A Boy line from Fancy Pants.

As always, everyone is invited to play along, and you don't need to have JBelle supplies to play. But if you don't have any, you can check out the store and see what strikes your fancy (get it Fancy Pants? LOL!).

I combined this challenge with SCS's new Monday challenge, the CAS challenge. Lately, I am really likin' the CAS style and am glad I stumbled onto this new challenge hosted by Jen! This weeks challenge was a sketch and you can find all the deets here. My card uses a piece of About A Boy, Chillin' DP with a tiny strip cut off and turned over. I then framed it in black and added a piece of pumpkin pie grosgrain ribbon. The sketch called for some kind of embellishment in the upper corner so I went with some Basic Grey buttons from the Granola and Ambrosia packs. The sentiment came from Inkadinkado's Birthday Cupcakes set. VERY simple card -hence CAS!! LOL!

Be sure to check out Lindsey's store, man oh man, she has the coffers FULL of new stuff! Lots of Inkadinkado, Basic Grey and Prima -yippee! If you play along, be sure to use the SCS keyword JBE041, so we can find all your creations. And don't forget to check out the other DT blogs for their cards!
