Just Us Girls #191

JUGS 191 photo JUGS191picA.jpg


Welcome to this week's Just Us Girls challenge - a sketch challenge hosted by Elise.

I  took quite a bit of "creative license" on the sketch (sorry Elise!) because I really wanted to use this PTI flower die again as the sketch immediately brought it to mind.

I paired the sketch with this week's  Color Throwdown and after popping up all six layers of the  flower, it is definitely a "fluffy" flower LOL!

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.
