Just Us Girls Challenge #147

 
This week's JUGS inspiration challenge is brought to us by Vicki. I am just loving this colour combination!  So bold, dramatic and in your face type of combo.  Well, at least it is for me since I normally tend to stick to softer colours.  But then, that's what a challenge is for, right?!  Stretching us out of our comfort zone :)


My card is a based on Card Patterns last sketch they posted before their sketches will be no more.  I did change it up a bit but kept most of the elements.  The big circle was perfect for a focal sentiment, and I was happy to use my Stampin' Up butterfly die which hasn't seen some love in a while.  

The verse is one of my favorite verses, and I try to reflect on it often.  It is so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life and the world we live in, neglecting the importance of just sitting still and grounding myself in the knowledge of who I am and what I believe in.  Making room this summer to just be still :)

The rest of the Design Team and our guest Designer Jen have some wonderful inspiration for you. Just head on over the the JUGS Blog to check them out.  Then, once you have created your card, simply add it to Mr. Linky and you could be the lucky winner of this week's JUGS badge :)  If you are using a public gallery, use keyword JUGS147.

Thanks so much for giving me a few minutes of your summer.  Trust you are enjoying yours as much as I am enjoying mine :)

What a wonderful card, Marisa. Love the verse. Your 'fly is a beauty..better use it while you can. Winter will be here before we know it and your butterfly will be toast. Ugh!

GORGEOUS! One of my favorite scriptures, too! Love the layered butterfly and the flourish for flight accenting is awesome! Beautifully done!
