butterfly to bloom...

Welcome to the Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge!

Today's challenge is to use your fav Jacksonbelle product!

First of all I should say that the thing I initially stocked up at the Jacksonbelle store was with ZVA bling. I couldn't find it locally and kept seeing them on Shemaine's cards...so I asked her where she bought them and one thing led to another and I applied for Lindsay's DT call...and bam! Here I am:)

I wanted to show you what inspired my card for today...Nina's newest challenge:

Isn't her card simply gorgeous?! I am constantly inspired by her designs....this is my take on her gorgeous creation:

The beauty of ZVA is the wonderful amount of bling that it provides...you get to say how much of an impact it will make on your project. Obviously the ZVA isn't the focal point of my card but it adds a nice touch to it and connects the butterfly to the bloom.

Do you see how I was inspired by Nina's card?

1. lace doilie

2. colors

3. bloom

4. butterfly

5. design

6. lace trim

We have so many of the same elements but our cards look so different...

I hope that you'll join in on the Jacksonbelle fun!
