JUST US GIRLS #333 - Word Week


Good morning and welcome! It's Word Week at JUST US GIRLS! Maria is your hostess this week and she wants you to add flowers to your card or project! Here's my card:


 And the inside:

Basing my card over the now ended TGIF#43 sketch, (sigh), I die cut and stamped a bunch of flowers and leaves, adhering them over a die cut frame. For some added sparkle, I've added Crystal Stickles to the flowers and sequins too. 

In hindsight, I should have used a darker green ink for the leaves. (Another sigh)

I hope that you get a chance to play along this week at Just Us Girls! We have a new Guest Designer joining us this month: Steph Castro! Please welcome her and leave some love on her blog, along with the design team! 

Just a reminder, if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our March challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of May! Good luck and happy crafting!

  11. Really beautiful card, Chris! I love the design, with the frame and flower cluster slightly off to the right, and the layers and texture from the stacked die cuts and embossed background is fabulous!
