First and foremost, I want to wish Vicki Dutcher a very happy birthday!! Her birthday was this past Wednesday, and the JUGS design team decided to celebrate Vicki by each of us making a birthday card for her using this week's inspiration picture. Happy Birthday, Vicki :)
I found this totally fabulous cake image on Pinterest and fell in love with it right away. The colour combo, mix of chevrons and polka dots, the frilly white middle and the big flower on top just stole my heart. Lots of inspirational elements you can use as a launching pad for your card
I used this week's Verve sketch and some of my favorite supplies on this card: Swiss dots embossing folder, elegant leaves die and matching leaf stamp, a flower, a butterfly and the heart trim die. I know my card doesn't say Happy Birthday, but I just love this sentiment as it is a good reminder to "embrace life" no matter what your age :)
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.
