You're an All Star at Jellypark!

Coffee of the Day - Maple Vanilla

Today is both a new challenge and fun new releases at Jellypark Friends! Claire has been listening to the digi image requests and drawn some adorable boys this time around. Be sure to stop by the store to see them, as well as check out what else is going on.

For the challenge at Jellypark Friends Friday Challenges, we are asking you to use your favorite embellishments on your papercraft projects. Well you can imagine my buttons and ribbons were all excited to get some action here! ;) Even if a card is for a guy, I am a firm believer that you can still sneak a ribbon on there somewhere..... just watch!

I used this great little footballer boy, or soccer as we call it here in the States, for my card. Tyler played while in High School and is a big supporter of the Univ. of Akron team. in fact, Akron won the National title for their division last year. yes, he got into it fully by painting his face for every game! grins! I used the new sketch from Fetch-A-Sketch for my design, although a bit loosely, and Basic Grey Oxford papers. please don't look to closely at my avant garde soccer ball..... I am not good at painting free hand. obviously! the metal embellishments are some I have had around forever and seemed perfect for this card. I added a stamped sentiment oval from PTI to a ticket with a ribbon 'garnish' so to speak. lots of fun little buttons made their way on to the card, and faux stitching completes. :)

Please check out the challenge blog to see the many samples of inspiration by the Design Team. and then get busy crafting your own project for the embellishment challenge so you can play along! you don't have to use a Jellypark image, but if you do, you get an extra entry for a chance at a free image from Claire's store. have fun! :)

Pixie Dust - boys will be boys
Cuddly Buddly - anything goes
Fussy & Fancy - 3 or more embellies

Cracking Card Jennifer, my goodness you've been busy, you're putting me to shame. I've already said I'd like to look through Diane's paper stash and the same goes for you, you always use gorgeous ones.
