JUST US GIRLS #340 Photo Week


Good morning and happy Saturday to you! Bobby is your hostess for Photo Week at JUST US GIRLS, and she's picked this fun image for you to be inspired by! For me the colors, the drink glass, flowers and the oranges inspired me to create this card:


 here's the inside:

I die cut a square out of white card stock and spritzed it with some aquamarine Glimmer Mist. While that was drying, I stamped, colored and fussy cut the pink drink. I searched my stash of flowers and brads and added them and the drink to my panel. I wasn't getting the coverage I wanted with the black ink for the cheers sentiment, (even with using my MISTI - stamping onto textured card stock will do that), so I stamped it again in versamark and heat embossed it in black. Much better!  Inside is finished with another sentiment.

 You may be able to see some of the shimmer on the panel in this pic:

I hope that you find some time this week to play along with our photo challenge at Just Us Girls!  We'd love to see how you interpret this picture.
