Every little swallow, every chickadee...Every little bird in the tall oak tree...

Happy Tuesday, yall! It's time for another Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge, and this week is a fun one! Kisa did a fun tutorial for the Jbelle Blog, so we are all casing her! It was tough, but I finially decided on this card to case. Here's my version:

I pulled out my Birds Galore set from Inkadinkado (love that set!) and inked it up with various Versamagic Dew Drops. After stamping it onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, I cut it out with my nestabilities and added a Rose Red mat. Using my mat pack and paper piercer, I pierced a border around the white panel, then adhered it to my 5 1/4" card base. The finishing touch was 2 prima flowers. I painted the white one with Pixie Dust Shimmerz Blingz, and accented the pink one with Hottie Pink Shimmerz Blingz.

{Sidenote...Shimmerz are on sale in the Jacksonbelle store!! There are 4 new Shimmerz colors and 2 new Blingz, and they're all 15% off until Friday at midnight! You can see them all HERE.}

Anywho, after the flowers dried, I added a clear dew drop to the center and adhered it to the card. Super easy!

Well, I gotta get back to working on some projects, so I'll have to say bye for now. Don't forget to check out what the rest of the team did for this challenge.
Have a wonderful day!
