JUST US GIRLS #273 - Photo Week

Happy Saturday and welcome to another fun challenge at JUST US GIRLS! This week is photo week and Nancy is your Hostess! She found this very fun picture to inspire you:

You may think that I would have gone with the obvious and used a bunch of circles and at least one elephant on my card. But nooooo, not me. I'm a rebel that way! LOL! I did use the colors though. That's what I was inspired by looking at this pic. See what I mean?

 Here's the inside:

I don't own any pink ink pads, so I simply did some second generation stamping with a red ink pad. Wah-la! Pink ink! It seems like all I've been making the last couple of months are holiday themed cards, so it was a nice change of pace to actually get back to making birthday cards. Good thing too. My stash of birthday cards is sadly lacking. ☺

I hope you find some time between taking advantage of all those after Christmas steals and deals to play along! LOL! Just link up your card or project at Just of Girls! We want to see it! While there, please check out the projects my teammates, and our December Guest Designer, Lee Ann Barrett, have created for your viewing pleasure. Remember that if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our challenges in December, you'll be in the running for our Guest Designer for February! How cool is that?!

Thanks for hanging out and I hope you have a great day. Stay crafty, my friends!

  1. I love this fun party card! That sentiment is priceless. Great idea to stamp off the red to get pink.

  2. LOVE those side images and that cheer is fabulous! I'm thinking that inside is very you - just a feeling I get ;)

  3. FABULOUS is right.... Fantastic layout.

  4. What a great birthday card! I was staring at it and just thinking, this is so fun and festive and then that sentiment just knocked me out of the park! Super, super cute! ....and you are soooo RIGHT about all those stinkin' sales. I'm going broke!

  5. Gorgeous card! Love the stamped images and your fun sentiment! It looks great with the challenge colors!

  6. Cute card for this time of year Chris! Love the inside sentiment too!

  7. NO PINK?? This looks fabulous. And I think you need to go shopping.

  8. I love your take on the photo! And I love that sentiment too! Great card!

  9. Wow, I love this! I probably would have gone the obvious route. lol. Love what you did with it.

  10. I am glad to hear there is another rebel in the stamping world, Chris! While I did go with the circles, I managed to get a boy card out of pink, white, and gray, LOL! This is such a great CAS card and that sentiment is made for your collage of images! Thanks so much for having me as a guest DT; I was honored and had a blast!
