Just Us Girls #209 - Sketch Challenge

Happy World Card Making Day!  Isn't it great that we card makers have a day?  Love it!  Just Us Girls is celebrating today with a sponsor.  One winner will win a $15 gift certificate to A Walk Down Memory Lane!

This week is our sketch challenge and Maria gave us this cool sketch.
I'm in a fall mood, so I went with these sunflowers from Papertrey Ink and fall colors.  Don't you just love dies?  I remember fussy cutting before dies...ugh!  I stamped the sunflowers in Butter Bar ink and the centers in Latte chalk ink (Hero Arts ink) and the leaves in Old Olive (SU).  The kraft paper was impressed with the woodgrain impression plate and I added a piece of dp from Sugar Hill paper pack by Farm House.  The sentiment was cut from Crushed Curry paper.  I added shimmer to the sentiment and flower centers with a Wink of Stella brush.  Grosgrain ribbon and some crystals finish it off.

You can see more from our JUGs DT (please welcome new DT members Sharyn, Sue, Cheryl, and Sue) at these blogs.
