JUST US GIRLS #382 - Photo Week

Welcome friends, and happy Saturday to you!
It's Photo Week at JUST US GIRLS! Sue is your hostess and she's chosen
this gorgeous picture to inspire you. Like her, I'm sooooo ready
for Spring, warm weather, and flowers blooming!
Here's what I came up with:

 Here is the inside:

My image was created by using 6 individual stamps, a little masking, and a lot of
swearing. LOL! I colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut. It's adhered with
thin foam squares. The sentiment is heat embossed in white onto black cardstock. I added some rhinestones for a little sparkle, and another sentiment finishes the inside.

I hope you get a chance to play along this week at Just Us Girls for our Photo Week. If you
need more inspiration, then do check out what my teammates, and our Guest Designer, Michele Greenwood, have come up with to dazzle you! Sadly, this is Michele's last time guesting with us
this month. I'd like to say THANK YOU for lending your amazing talent to us, 
and hope to see more of your fabulous creations in our gallery in the future!

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a great day!
