This is a first!
If you follow my blog, you know that I participate in a lot of stamping challenges from other blogs. friend Kris and I have started a stamping challenge.  So far it's just between the two of us.  Until we figure out how to set up the process for other stampers to link to our blogs.  There's SO much more to learn!  Well, we have to start somewhere.
My friend Kris (who is also my co-worker AND SU demo) has a Jelly Belly machine in her office.  You give it a couple of cranks, and you get a few jelly beans.  One day recently Kris came to me with three jelly beans in her hand, showing me the 3 colors would make a good color combination for a card.  Ta da!  Eventually, that led to us creating our Jelly Belly Crank Challenge...and this is the first challenge (hence the JBCC #1 title).
This is a photo of the jelly bean colors that I had to work with!

Now, just a warning...the sentiment on this card is very unusual.  I saw this stamp a few months ago, and thought of my friend "K".  I'll keep her identity secret, to protect the guilty  :)
I CASE'd the layout for this card from Denise, over at The Paper Landscaper, I just changed out the sentiment (obviously), the colors and...well that's about all!  I thought her card was SO pretty!  Check out her card here.
Here is my version ~
I sent this card out to "K" a few days ago, and we had a few laughs about it yesterday when we chatted on Facebook!  It's great to have those friends that you can talk to about almost anything...and laugh about it!
Enjoy your weekend.
