A Fabulous New Contest With a Not So Fabulous Card! :(

WARNING: Do not look too closely at this card. It's definitely not a work of art!

Can you tell I am not happy with my card? The stamps are cute, just not the card! This week's Jacksonbelle Challenge was to create a card with only one layer. EEEK! One layer? That's impossible! Ok, so not impossible for some, just for me. Anyway, this card is pretty ugly so I am sorry. However, if you choose to play along this week, you could possibly win a pretty fab prize! Check out the Jacksonbelle Blog!!

Here are the deets: Starting Today we (the fantastic Design Team and I) will be posting the Tuesday Challenges, and THIS month all the challenges will be what you need to follow for the contest! We’d LOVE for you to play along!
The grand prize winner will receive a $50.00 Gift Certificate to my store! 2nd Place, $30.00 and 3rd place $15.00! There will be a goodie package going out to ALL winners!! If you decide to play each week, you will need to email your card to jacksonbelleembellishments@gmail.com. Make SURE to link your card to the store blog as well. That way we can ALL see the cards and your name will be entered into a random drawing. THAT person will also win a goodie bag!
SO, here's the rules. You have to use Inkadinkado, Stampavie, Prima or Basic Grey stamps. (Any stamps that can be purchased at the store) as well as use one of our Tuesday challenges that I will post here each Tuesday! You can enter as many times as you’d like! As always, we will post coordinating Keywords for the challenges if you are posting on Splitcoaststampers.com, so we will all be able to see your card(s)!
Following the last Tuesday’s challenge (Sept. 28th), you will have until Thursday, Oct. 1st at midnight (EST) to get your cards to us! After that, the design team and I will need a few days to decide on the winners!! Make sure to check out the design team’s blogs and store blog each week for LOTS of inspiration using the weekly challenges! We hope you will have time to play with us and if you have ANY questions, please feel free to ask!

As for my card details, I used one of the new Inkadinkado sets called "Spider Web" which you can find in the Jacksonbelle Store!

Well, that's it for today's card! Make sure to check out this week's challenge details on the Jacksonbelle blog as well as the other Jacksonbelle girls!
