 Hi friends!  Just Us Girls has a fantastic challenge for you this week!  It's our technique challenge week and our lovely Kathryn chose the Center Step technique.  What fun cards these are to create!
So here's what I did.  I saw a card in the Center Step card gallery on SCS (sorry couldn't find it again) that created a door for the focal image.  I thought it was a really cool idea and just had to create one as well1  I've had this die and Wreaths of Joy stamp set from Taylored Expressions for a while and it was screaming to be used.  I created the base of the card using Riding Hood Red cardstock.  The door was created using pieces of the cardstock which I ran through the woodgrain plate.  The woodgrain was accentuated with some distress inks.  The wreath was cut, stamped, and colored, then I added the ribbon.  It was attached to the door with dimensionals.  The dp is from SU's retired Holiday Treasures.  The sentiment is from a PTI set. 
Here's a side shot of the card so you can see the folds of this fun card.  I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this card was to create!
Stop by the JUGs blog for more inspiration from our fabulous JUGs design team.  Thanks for stopping by!
