Just Us Girls #199 - Photo Inspiration Challenge

Hi friends!  The challenge over at Just Us Girls is a photo inspiration challenge.  I'm the hostess so I got to choose the photo.  I found this one on Pinterest that I thought was so fresh and summery.

I went kind of literal with my card.  I used strawberries, of course, and the colors as my inspiration for the card.  I used so many different materials and stamps on this one little card!  I'm not good at sewing on cards...bobbin problems always!  So I bought this little set from Papertrey Ink called Sew Simple Borders so I could cheat!  I also wanted to add some Crystal Effects to the strawberries, but the nozzle was clogged and I couldn't get it to come out!  I guess it looks fine without it!

I used this sketch from The Deconstructed Sketch Challenge.  Love it!

Stop by these blogs to see what the JUGs design team created with this photo inspiration.
