Jbelle Inspiration

I'm running a little late today, but I do have a Jbelle challenge card to share with you. The challenge is to choose one of the darling little girl dresses shown on this website, and use it to inspire your creation. Goodness there were so many cute choices, but I finally settled on this one, because the red trim reminded me of some great May Arts ribbon I have. I also used the seams and snowflake to come up with my layout.
And here's my card:
The ribbon is from May Arts, as I mentioned. The snowflake is a Sizzix die cut, which I dressed up using a Prima Say it in Studs center. I ran my three panels thru my cuttlebug with an embossing folder, finishing off the edges with a gold paint pen. And lots of dimensionals tossed in for good measure.
Here are the links to the rest of the players. Hopefully you'll find time and inspiration to join us. Use keyword JBE080 when uploading.

Love your card today Bethany! I like your new banner too. How are things going? Just wanted to let you know I am still out here, peeking at all my favorite blogs. I'm still trying to get inspired...I have been in a major creative funk! I have to be honest...I keep coming back to your blog too just in case you make an announcement that there is a little Paull bambino on the way! Hugs!
