JUST US GIRLS #378 - Photo Week

Happy Saturday crafty peeps! Today starts Photo Week at JUST US GIRLS! Nancy is your hostess and she's picked this adorable photo as your inspiration! Here's what I came up with:

 and the inside:

I created my flower cluster by first stamping and fussy cutting the daisy and ladybug onto masking paper.Then it was just of matter of stamping, masking, coloring and fussy cutting. Once I had the frame, doily and strip of black cardstock adhered, I used my MISTI to stamp happy birthday onto the card. The daisies are adhered with some thin foam squares. For a little sparkle, I added a few rhinestones.

I hope you get a chance to play along this week at Just Us Girls! We'd love to see how you interpret the inspiration photo. For more ideas, please check out what my teammies, and our Guest Designer, Shawna, have created and leave them some bloggy lovin!

Just a reminder: If you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our January challenges, you'll be in
the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of March!

Have fun and thanks for visiting!
