JUGS #151


August InspirationThis week's JUGS inspiration challenge is brought to us by Vicki.  She has found this fabulous picture that provides all sorts of directions for your mojo to go in :)  You can click on it to enlarge it if you want to be able to see more details.

I love the soft colours and picked up the kraft bedspread with white images (though my white damask design on the kraft is almost all covered up on my card), the ruffles from the pillow cases, the pink polka dots from the tea pot (sure makes me with I had a PTI or MFT tea pot die!) the green I used from the other tea pot and the yellow rose from the cluster of whatever is on the right hand side of the bed (my eyes are no longer young enough to be able to figure out what the heck it is lol!).   I was tempted to make a baby card but was a bit short on time so you got a CAS one instead - sorry!

The rest of the Design Team and our August Guest Designer Jen, have some great samples to get your inspiration going.  Just pop over to the JUGS blog for a peek :)
