As you can see from the above graphic, we are switching things up her at Just Us Girls! Sketch and Technique challenges have now been replaced with Word and Trend challenges. Since we are in the first week of July, we get to enjoy our very first new challenge! The word of the week is "bird". Any type of bird will do.
First of all, happy 4th of July to all my American friends and followers! May you have a wonderful day celebrating, BBQing, relaxing or whatever is on your agenda today :)
For my card, I pulled out my Stampin' Up owl punch and went to work. The coloured leaves are from PTI's Nuts About You die set, I embossed the "tree" with a wood grain folder and added a few leaves around the owl for a little something.
The rest of the JUGS team along with our new, July Guest Designer, Rebekka Reed, 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. Simply create a card using the sketch and link it up to the JUGS blog for a chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week. Remember, if you are chosen as Chic of the Week, you could be invited to be a Guest Designer.
Look forward to seeing all the different birds that are used!
