Just Us Girls #186 - Inspiration Challenge

JUGS photo JUGS186picA.jpg


Welcome to this week's Just Us Girls challenge.  This week, our newest DT member Nancy has provided this fabulous inspiration picture to work from.

I love pink and black together! Such a wonderful colour combination that makes a great statement.

I pulled out two Stampin' Up sets I have not used for a long time, Vintage Vogue and Bliss, and went to work.

I created a Damask Background and added the flowers and ribbon for the pops of colour.

The rest of the  JUGS team has some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so just hop on over to the Just Us Girls blog, and check out what the Design Team has created.  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card/project to the challenge post on the JUGS blog for the chance to be selected as Chic of the Week.  
 
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
