Just Us Girls #242 - Inspiration Challenge

JUGS 242 photo JUGS242picA.jpg

Vicki has provided this fun inspiration photo for us to work from this week! Love the bold stripes of black and white with the touch of pink!

I can't put Verve's newly released Be Blessed set down!  Absolutely LOVE this set!! The flowers and matching dies are going to be used a lot by me, myself and I {grin}!

Kept things simple as the bold stripes make quite the statement.  A touchof pink and green to soften things up and a few scattered sequins from Verve's Shine Bright Mix to finish things off.

The rest of the  JUGS team, along with our May Guest Designer Barbara Campbell have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog and check out what they've 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.  Plus if you are chosen as Chic of the Week, you could be invited to be a Guest Designer.

Wishing you a fabulous weekend!
