Jacksonbelle Tuesday challenge

Hi everyone, today's Tuesday and that means it's time for another Jacksonbelle challenge! This week is a fun one!

We were challenged to a 1,2,3 recipe:
1 stamp
2 embellishments
3 layers.

Like always, 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 if anything strikes your fancy.

Since I could only have 1 stamp, I decided to make the focal image an embellishment and use the stamp for a sentiment. I had so much fun with this recipe I made TWO! This first one uses Wild Wasabi card base (that's 1), a layer of white which I ran the top thru the CB with Swiss Dots (that's 2), and the lower portion is a piece of Imaginisce DP from the Fairest of Them All line (that makes 3!!). The Prima flower portion is 1 and the ribbon makes 2 embellishments (OK, on this one I stretched it, cause the brad is technically separate from the flower!) and the 1 stamp is the HB sentiment from Repeat Impressions.

The second card uses a fancy schmancy flower from Prima from their Hybrid floral embellishments, Lindsey is currently out of stock of these, but if you are interested send her an email and she can order them for you!! I used the same layout as the first card. The DP is from Memory Box, Sprout line. The ribbons are 1 and the flower is 2 embellishments, and 1 stamp is the TY sentiment from Repeat Impressions.

We'd love to have you play along and if you do, be sure to use keyword JBE050 when you upload your card so we can find all the sketch cards in one place. Don't forget to check out the other DT blogs for their cards!
