JUST US GIRLS! #294 - Photo Week

Hello and good morning crafty peeps! Lisa is our hostess for Photo Week at JUST US GIRLS! Just look at that gorgeous photo she found to inspire you! Here's my take on it:

 here's the inside:

I drew my inspiration from so much in that photo: the white space, the pops of teal and orange, the wood floor, that cut out design in the window on the right hand side. (I even had an EF similar to the design! Woo Hoo!) My card is based on the now extinct Case this Sketch #122. (Yep, working ahead still and this post was scheduled a while ago!)

I hope you get the chance to play along for our Photo Week at Just Us Girls! I'd love to see what you create! Please be sure to check out what the other gals, and our current GD, Tenia Nelson, have created for your viewing pleasure. ☺ Remember that if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of the May challenges, you'll be in the running for Guest Designer for the month of July. Good luck and have fun!
