The heart is a bloom, shoots up through the stony ground...

Hey yall! I hope you're having a fantastic day...and if you're not, you better fix it quick! It's the last day of 2008!

The Jacksonbelle Embellishments team is having a New Year's Eve Bash, complete with challenges and a treasure hunt! All the details are on the JBE Blog HERE.

One of the challenges was to use black, white and some bling. I think I got it all covered in this one! Plus (you know, I had to break these girls in to how I do things...) I added a little blue ribbon. Just cause I wanted to. *wink*


I stamped the bird from the Birds Galore set in Versamark on watercolor paper, then embossed him with black detail embossing powder. After sketching a little trail, I pierced along the line and erased my pencil lines. Then I curved the sentiment (from October Afternoon) along the line and stamped it in Brilliance Graphite Black.

Once everything was dry, I lightly painted the entire card front with Candle Light Shimmerz. So pretty! Then to finish it off, I punched the bottom with my new Martha punch, threaded the ribbon through, and tied it in a bow. Super simple, but pretty elegant I think! I have no idea where I got the ribbon...it was in my stash. *grin*

Don't forget to use the Keyword JBENYE2 if you decide to play along to win some prizes!

We'll be chatting it up on the PCP group, so come join us if you want!!

See you with another project in a bit!
