Just Us Girls #229 - Photo Inspiration Challenge

Hi everyone!  I'm the hostess this week over at Just Us Girls for the Photo Inspiration Challenge.  I've chosen a photo I hope you'll get lots of inspiration from!

Here's a closeup.  I just loved the spools and how they were decorated.  I also loved the colors!

I had so many ideas running through my, but settled on this.  The spool dies are from My Favorite Things Sew Nifty set.  I cut them several times and glued them together to make them more substantial.  The top ones were run through the wood grain impression plate.  Then I covered them with some picket fence distress stain.  I covered the middle of them with pattern paper that looks similar to one of the spools.  The vellum piece was run through the Swiss Dots embossing folder.

I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.  I changed the sentiment piece a bit, but it still has the same feel I think!

You can see more inspiration from the JUGs team at these blogs.
Thanks for stopping by!
