Jacksonbelle Tuesday

Today's JB Challenge wasn't really much of a challenge for me at all....use something from Jacksonbelle Embellishments Store - well that isn't hard - is it!?! Perhaps more of a challenge would be DON'T use Shimmerz cuz I'm totally addicted! I wonder if there is some odorless fume coming from this stuff that has an addictive quality.....or is it just the shimmery glimmery glow of it? Either way......I'm hooked!
The Card.
Yes, I know this card is just plain ol' simple.....but I planned it that way! Sometimes it is nice to just keep it plain and simple, appreciate some really cute paper and a darling little deer! The paper is from Memory Box and the deer is from Detours - October Afternoon. I used Wild Wasabi paper and Certainly Celery, and the ribbon is American Crafts.

So where does the Shimmerz come in? You might have to click on the card (or see the picture posted below) to see it.....but the whole piece of patterned paper is covered with it! It is beautiful in real life! I used Green Olive Shimmerz Glitter Paint for the patterned paper and Coffee Shimmerz for the deer. So now plain old paper...is all shiny and new! The ribbon is very shimmery too with gold flecks, so I thought it went well.

Inside.

I really like the sentiment and the tree that also come with this stamp set, so I thought I'd show you the inside too! I made this card for a friend's birthday - she's already received it so it is okay to share it here! I hope she enjoyed it!

Be sure to check out the rest of the design team's cards - I know they are fab!
