This week Nancy is our hostess and she has provided us with this fabulous colour combination to work with. I just loooove brown and blue/aqua together, especially since they are Verve's signature colours :) The photo makes it almost seem black, but trust me, it is Early Espresso!
After seeing this week's Merry Monday challenge involving snowflakes, I had snowflakes on the brain because they are my favorite Christmas element to put on cards. That lead to my gleefully pulling out PTI's large snowflake die! I mounted it ion a kraft tag since the current Verve Diva Dare is to make a tag or use one on a card, and added the embossed background. The sentiment is from Verve's Glad Tidings set and it is stamped on this fun banner from Verve's Flag It die set. Fiddled with whether to have it vertically or horizontally oriented, and settled on horizontal, though I'm still not sure which version I liked better LOL!
The rest of the JUGS team, including our three new DT member's, have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head 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 chosen as the Chic of the Week.
Hoping for a quiet weekend with lots of R & R as we have been going full tilt as a family for over two months now. Think everyone is in agreement too, even our extrovert LOL! Have a great weekend everyone!
