Just Us Girls #155
This week's Just Us Girls challenge is hosted by yours truly :) It's my first kick at the can as a hostess and I have selected this wonderful boy's room as your inspiration picture. I loved the colour combination in this picture and the pendants. I hope it inspires you as well! Just click on the picture to enlarge it if you have trouble seeing it.
I tripped across a new challenge blog called Fab Fridays and decided to use the sketch for my card. I kept to the colour scheme, added a pendant banner by cutting up the new pennant trim die by Verve and used a mini alphabet set I got in the Michael's $1.50 bin a few years ago to add the letters to the banner. Emery is paper pieced and looks like he has chicken pox, but no other paper would work for me so I stuck with this one. A few buttons and stars finished things off.
The rest of the Design Team has some great samples to get your inspiration going. Just pop over to the Just Us Girls blog for a peek at their wonderful creations.
We'd love to have you play along with us this week. Simply create a card using this week's technique and link it to the JUGS blog and you may be selected as Chick of the Week :)
Look forward to seeing your creations!
