Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge~ Casing Kim!!

Todays's Challenge at Jacksonbelle Embellishments is to Case our fellow talented and sweet DT member Kim! Her SCS gallery is full of adorable cards! It was so hard to choose. I liked them so much, I decided to case 2!! If you would like to play along, please used Keyword JBE040 when uploading to SCS or you can link your card to the Jacksonbelle Blog! We would love to see your cards!! And you don't have to use Jacksonbelle stuff, but it would be extra sweet if you did!! ;)

For my 1st card I decided to case this one by Kim. Isn't her card beautiful?!! (click on photos for a closer look)

On my card, I used some of these gorgeous papers by Memory Box from their Sprout Collection. They are so pretty and subtle. I thought they would be perfect for a spring type card. I also added a stamped Butterfly by Inque Boutique/Darice and then covered it with some Pink Poinsettia AND Pixie Dust Shimmerz and some mini pearls!! It looks so beautiful and shimmery IRL!! I also added some sheer ribbon, photo corners which I drew and cut out, a button and the saying was printed out of MS Word. The beautiful Memory Box papers and Shimmerz can be purchased at the Jacksonbelle Store!

For my 2nd card I cased this beautiful card by Kim!

On my card, I used some fun paper by October Afternoon (Hometown, Main Street) and the cute little Giraffe and sentiment stamp set by Prima. I added 2 Scenic Route chipboard stars, which I rubbed my ink pads onto them for the base color and then some December Sky and Sunny Shimmerz for a little added bling!! All the cardstock is by Bazzill except the light blue cs. Not sure who that is by, but it has cute little stars embossed on it. To finish it off, I added some pale yellow crocheted ribbon that I just got on Clearance at AC Moore for like a buck!! This awesome October Afternoon paper and Prima stamp set can be purchased at the Jacksonbelle Store!

Make sure you check out the rest of this talented DT and see what they created this week!!
