Just Us Girls #70 - Sketch Challenge

It's Saturday! So happy about that...are you? I have two posts today, so make sure you see them both!Just Us Girls has a sketch challenge today and we are also being sponsored by Want 2 Scrap.
They have some great bling and accessories for scrapbooking and card making. I had some wonderful ribbon from them to work with. I made a shaped card with the largest Nestability in this set. I loved the simplicity of the sketch as it allowed me to get creative with this Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime paper. The flower was made with this paper and the Tim Holtz paper rosette die. I used some of the bling from Want 2 Scrap in the middle of the flower. The bling comes in a strip, and I cut it to make it into a circular shape. The sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps. And I just adore the pretty, delicate leafy ribbon from Want 2 Scrap.

You'll want to stop by the JUGs blog and see what the DT have done with supplies from Want 2 Scrap. We have Elise and Mimi from Want 2 Scrap joining us today and Lori, our new guest designer for February. Welcome girls!

Thanks for stopping in today! Please make sure you see the My Time Made Easy year in review post!
