Jacksonbelle Embellishments Tuesday Challenge

It's another anything-goes challenge! I made this card last week with a particular friend in mind; I'm just really bad about mailing/giving card (yes, I know, that's crazy, since I make them all of the time) but I'm hoping to mail it out in the next few days!

The Card.
I don't know that I've ever used this color combo before. I was a bit nervous about using this yellow and pink together (So Safron and Pretty in Pink), but really, I think it worked out quite well! Of course, I LOVE the Basic Grey paper, Sugared, and I got the colors from that paper, so really, it can't be that bad! I've been seeing some great use of buttons lately, which I am thrilled about as I have a good little stash of them! It seems that embellishment fads come and go, so I guess if you hoard (I mean hold) onto the embellishments long enough they are bound to come back! This is one of those cute little Inkadinkado stamp sets; I think they are so fun! I colored the image with my Prismacolor alcohol markers. I stamped the duck's head twice, cut it out and popped it with some dimensionals to give it some depth. The ribbon is SU pink taffeta; it ties beautifully, although I didn't tie it too well! (Boy, I really wish that bow was a bit straighter!) The Chocolate Chip cardstock looks a bit black in the photo.

I used Sunflower Shimmerz to color the bill and Pink Shimmerz for the flower. (Okay, I do agree - it is a four-leaf clover, but for this card I made it a pink flower!) You can find more information about Shimmerz at Shimmerzpaints.blogspot.com.
Look at the Shimmerz!
Be sure to check out the other design team blogs today and see what they came up with!
While you are out visiting them be sure to check out Amber's PC Gallery Idol submission. She made the Top 10! She's got a link on her blog where you can vote! Her card is great!
Also, be sure to check out Jacksonbelle Embellishments! Lindsey has been getting plenty of visits from her good-lookin UPS man! You will find lots of new Inkadinkado stamps, acrylic and wood mounted Halloween and Christmas stamps and they are so cute! She also got some of the new Cosmo paper in and more Shimmerz! Oh, and she also is now carrying Cuttlebug Embossing folders!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Tuesday!
