Jacksonbelle Embellishments Tuesday Challenge

I always look forward to Tuesdays - Jacksonbelle Tuesdays! I love to hop around to each design team members blog and see what they came up with and to see what products they used. I usually find more things to add to my ever-growing shopping list at Jacksonbelle Embellishments. This week we all CASEd Erin. I love it when we do this because I love to look at the original card and then the CASEd card and see the similarities and the differences. I looked through Erin's gallery and found this card. I looked at it several times and then CASEd it by memory. I like doing it by memory because something from the card always sticks in my mind but I don't end up with a card looking as if I truly copied it!

The elements that stuck in my mind that I tried to recreate were three buttons on the top and bottom, left and right sides of a rectangle and possibly some layered strips of patterned paper in the background, and now that I've made my card (casing Erin by memory) I feel like my card looks nothing like hers! Yes, it has the three buttons...a rectangle and some strips of paper - but really - it is quite different! Perhaps my memory isn't as good as I thought it was!

And now for the Shimmerz! Isn't it gorgeous? I stamped the Lizzie Anne Designs ballerina on watercolor paper with Stazon and then I painted them in with Shimmerz! I thought it was soo pretty and appropriate for these precious little girls! I also painted a thin line around the outside edge of the paper to frame it just a bit. I used Pink, Beeswax, and Olive Green.

I'm adore these Prima flowers and I'm in love with Shimmerz - so much so that I would like to marry it, but since I'm already married and I just don't think my husband would approve- I've decided that Shimmerz and Primas make a better couple! I bought the huge pack of white naked Prima flowers just so I could paint them all!! Don't you LOVE them too??!! They are like candy!! It's probably a good thing that Shimmerz isn't scented because I'd have a hard time not tasting these little treats!

Be sure to check out the other design team member's blogs to see how they CASEd Erin!
