JUST US GIRLS #282 - Photo Week!

Good morning crafty peeps! It's Photo Week at JUST US GIRLS! Vicki is your hostess this week and she picked out this gorgeous picture - oh the possibilities! Here's the card I made:

So, I got all glittery with this one. Plus I used some stamps that have never seen ink before. Yay me! Those pennants are actually shaped foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I simply sprinkled glitter over them and burnished with my finger. For the striped panel, I covered it in double sided tape, then peeling off every other strip, sprinkled one color of glitter over it. After burnishing with my finger, I tapped off the excess glitter and put it back into it's container. I repeated this for the second glitter color. The jar was from a set that I've never opened up until now, the coin was also inked for the first time (NBUS!) The sentiment was first stamped with VersaMark, then Mowed Lawn and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. 

Look at all the shiny and sparkly!! 

With St. Paddy's Day approaching, why not make a card or project inspired by this picture and join us at Just Us Girls?! While there, please check out the amazing creations that my teammates, and our February Guest Designer, Stephanie, have made. It's Stephanie's last challenge with us and we really enjoyed having her as our GD. Thanks Stephanie!
