October Afternoon Throwdown


It's Tuesday and time for a Jacksonbelle Embellishment Challenge. This week the product spotlight is on October Afternoon! Don't you just love that name? We would love to see what you come up with for the challenge so if you upload to SCS, be sure to use the code JBE036!

I decided to use October Afternoon pattern paper on my card. OMGosh, this is one of my new favorite lines of paper. It's double sided and I absolutely love the colors and amount of detail on all of the designs. I even used it on my New Stuff challenge card last Tuesday! I paired this fabulous paper with the Basic Grey Bitsy Lotus stamps. The flower is stamped twice so I could cut out and raise the middle petals with a dimensional. To give it a little more detail, I took a Chocolate Chip marker and added some dots making it match the flowers in the paper. I also added a Men's Dew Drop to the center. The layout comes from Mojo 70!

Check out what the rest of the design team came up with for this challenge:
