I love all of these three companies individually and it was so fun to create a card where all the components from the different companies are compatible with all of the other components. I was excited to work with the Nestaboard Labels 18 which perfectly coordinate with the Spellbinder's Labels 18 and used the Nestabling Labels 5 White Pearl  that coordinates perfectly with Spellbinder's Labels 5 and used the awesome new stamp sets from this month's September release from JustRite Stamps :)
I was amazed at how easy it was to cover the Chipboard - I die cut the exact matching size onto the DP that I was going to use and then adhered them together. Using that die, I traced the outside edge to create a mat for the layer and then sponged the inside of the DP (with the die still intact) to create an easy sponged/frame look - here is a picture to show how these 4 layers merged together to create the layer:


I was so excited to try out the Nestabling - whoo-hoo! You know I love liquid pearls and was so excited to use this product that perfectly allows for a layer of bling/pearls to line all the different awesome shaped dies and labels! I loved adding a row of all the little pearls with the Baby LaCreme Pearls and then used the large White Pearls in the corner from from Want2Scrap. 

I love the collage image from the Greetings from Paris stamp set and used the birthday sentiment from the Shabby Chic Labels 4 stamp set. I was so excited to make this card for a very special girl who is off to college this school year! I hope that this card brightens up her day! If you haven't seen all the creations with these amazing products - You can find all the links for each days event this week on the following manufacture's blogs:

And check out all these amazing designers who are on today's blog hop - love the way that they integrated all these amazing products into amazing creations!

Thank you for joining us today and we hope you enjoy the Blog Hop. Please be sure to stop back each day during the week to see what each designer has been busy creating!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
