Jacksonbelle Tuesday challenge

Hi everyone! It's Tuesday and time for another Jacksonbelle challenge. This entire month we have sketches! I love this sketch!! I actually flipped it vertical. Everyone is welcome to play along. As usual if 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. You can use the keyword JBE058.

That lovely bird image is from Inkadinkado, Birds Galore. I stamped the bird part with purple and the leaves with green chalk ink. I love using chalk ink on clear stamps, because you can see what you are doing and the ink doesn't dry! The amazing crocheted flower is hand made and the pearls are Basic Grey Bling it. The pattern paper is Sprout from Memory Box. See that embossing detail at the bottom? I bought some of the Cuttlebug border folders and never really used them. I kinda like how this turned out.

Be sure to check out the other Design Team's cards, lots of inspiration to be found!!
