JUST US GIRLS #268 - Photo Week

Hello crafty peeps! We have a new challenge at JUST US GIRLS! Cheryl is our hostess this week and she found this gorgeous photo as our inspiration:

I love it when the paper collection does all the work for you! LOL! I think what took the longest putting this card together was inking all the panel edges! ☺ 

I hope you get a chance to play along this week at Just Us Girls! Please be sure to visit my teammates and our November GD, Tajanna, and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
