Country Girl



Happy Tuesday. It's time for another Jacksonbelle Embellishment challenge. This is our 4th sketch of the month. Definitely another one that can be interpreted in many different ways. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. When uploading your card to SCS, please use the keyword JBE059.



I decided to stretch the sketch and make it a little longer. It just worked with my image better. My card measures 6 x 3.5!! I used my new Stampavie Country Girl. Isn't she super sweet? I colored it in with Copics. Speaking of which, this also qualifies for the Copic Challenge # 6. The challenge was to color wood. I used the Basic Grey Marrakech paper. I thought it had a nice country feel to it. It kind of reminded me of bandanas. The sentiment was cut out using a Ribbon Label Nestie. The little pearls are by Basic Grey. Don't forget that you have just a few more hours to apply for the new JBE Design Team! Be sure to swing by and check out what the other girls came up with for this challenge:
