JUST US GIRLS #368 - Word Week

Good morning all and welcome! It's Word Week at JUST US GIRLS! Sue is your hostess this week and she's picked the word "ENCOURAGEMENT" for you to be inspired by. Here's my card:

 and the inside:

I know dogwood flowers are either white or pink, but I took artistic license and colored them purple. I had no sketch to follow, I just put things here and there to see if I liked it, before adhering. I did think the background needed something, so I found some purple mist and washi tape and added that to the mix. Another CAAS card for me (clean and almost simple!) Ha! 

I hope that you find some time to play along with our word week challenge at Just Us Girls! Since it's a new month, we have a new Guest Designer joining us! Welcome Cecile Ribon! I am looking forward to seeing what you create with us this month! For even more inspiration, please visit the blogs of my teammates and leave some love! 

Remember, if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our November challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of January! Good luck and have fun crafting!

I absolutely think this card is fantastic in purple! Way to go Chris! Have a great day!

Sue VanDeVusse said...

This is absolutely GORGEOUS! I love how you colored those flowers on the kraft and the washi tape and the purple spritz finish it off beautifully. That sentiment is wonderful and so full of encouragement!

Bobby said...

Great design, Chris, and I love those flowers in purple.

Ina G said...

Who said those flowers can't be purple? I have yet to ink up that stamp. Love your take on our Inspiration Challenge. Great finish with the washi tape and spritzing. That sentiment is 'perfect' Chris.
