JBelle Tuesday! Easy as 1-2-3!

Well, actually it's not that easy! LOL Today's Jacksonbelle Embellishments DT Challenge was to make a card using 1 stamp, 2 embellishments and 3 layers or less! I was going to cheat and use 1 Stamp Set, but then decided to be good! I had originally stamped this owl and a branch from the Pink Paislee Harvest Moon stamp set! But then decided to play fair and I added a real branch from my yard, instead of the stamped branch and that would also serve as 1 of my embellies! But then I CHEATED anyway!! LOL The card looked like it was missing something, so I then stamped the little itty bitty "Thankful" from the same set!! hehe But I did only use 3 layers including my white card base and only 2 embellies, the ribbon and stick!

All the Pink Paislee Captivating papers can be found at the JBelle Store as well as the Shimmerz Paints that I colored the owl with! I used Gold Glimmer and Blueberry Cobbler!

We would love for you to play along too! Just use keyword JBE050 when uploading to SCS or you can put a link to your card on the JBelle Blog! Now check out the rest of the JBelle Rockstars and see what they created!
