JUGS a La Maureen

 
I just had to play along with this week's JUGS (Just Us Girls) sketch because it was designed by my blogging buddy Maureen, who is their guest designer this month.  She creates great sketches and this one was another wonderful one to work with and it came together really quickly, which is an added bonus.  Must be her Diva Dust floating my way :) 

The DP is from Pink Paisley which I won as part of some blog candy a while back, and since there was a flower on the sketch and I loved the crimped flower on my card a few days back, I decided to use my PTI flower dies to make anther one.  Hey, at least it isn't a maple leaf LOL!

I'm thinking I should have maybe matted the designer paper, but it's too late now!  My final touch and tribute to Maureen is using some bling by the sentiment like she does on her cards.  When you add the button I used on the flower and you've got "buttons and bling" the name of her blog :)  Cheers, Moe!  Loved the sketch.
