JUST US GIRLS #354 Wild Card Week!

Good morning and welcome crafty friends! Since this is the 5th Saturday of the month, we have a Wild Card week at JUST US GIRLS! Nancy is your hostess this week, and she wants to see any card or project that has a girly theme to it!

Here's my card:

 and the inside:

I just picked up this sweet little miss from Taylored Expressions retirement sale. Loved coloring her! I still need more practice with coloring the ruffles in a skirt, but they came out ok. Lots of pretty embellies on this: lace, ribbon, rhinestones. My card is a total case of this card by Melissa Sauls. (Thank you Melissa!) I just loved the card design so went with that. ☺ 

So, ready to make something with a girl theme on it? Of course you are! Be sure to link it up at Just Us Girls so we can admire it. While there, please visit the blogs of the design team, and our Guest Designer, Carol Mayne, and leave some bloggy love! This is Carol's last week as GD with us, and I'd like to say a big thank you for sharing your amazing talent with us! 

Just a reminder, if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our July challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of September! Thanks for visiting!

  1. What a fabulous card, Chris! Awesome girly design and such a cute little image. Your coloring is awesome. Think you definitely nailed the pleats on the skirt. Loving the papers and the layered trims, too!

  2. The subtle details are awesome for the "girly" card today~ That bg paper is stunning too

  3. I think the ruffles look awesome! You did a great job coloring Chris! Super card!

  4. Super sweet image and I love the flowery background too!

  5. Super sweet image and I love the flowery background too!

  6. You gave me heart failure, Chris — I thought you meant Taylored Expressions the COMPANY was retiring, not just some of their stuff. :P But now that I've recovered, I can appreciate your sweet card!

  7. Oh Chris that image is just adorable and coloured beautifully. Love the dies you used the bling lace and bow. Great DP in the background.

  8. Your little miss, sporting her pretty pink ruffled dress, is darling! Such lovely surroundings you've created for her with the frame, the bow, the lace and the gorgeous paper! Feminine fantastic in every way! Thank you soooooo much for the opportunity to join the fabulous team this month; a highlight of my crafting career in every way! You’ll for sure see me playing along in the gallery!

  9. LOVE this sweet little card. Great patterned background, and your little gal is colored beautifully. Wonderful design too....well done!
