Just Us Girls #249 - Trend Week: Woodgrain

Hi everyone!  I've not been posting much because I've been on vacation in Ireland!  We had a great time.  I'll post pictures later on next week.
 
While I was gone, the Just us Girls team announced a change in the monthly line-up.  You can see the changes on the graphic below.
 
So this week is trend week and Cheryl is our hostess.  She's chosen to have us use wood grain on our creations.
 
I just purchased a pack of wood paper from JoAnn's a couple of weeks ago and it was perfect for this challenge!  I looked through my variety of dies to see what would work with the wood paper and settled on this picnic basket.  I die cut it from the wood paper and then stamped it with the coordinating stamp in brown ink.  I also die cut the gingham paper for the napkin.  The apples were stamped and colored with copics then I applied glossy accents to shine them up.  I inlaid the word happy and stamped birthday under it in brown ink.  I cut a triangle from the gingham paper and popped up the picnic basket.
 
I used the sketch from the Fusion Challenge.
 
You can find more inspiration from the JUGs DT on these blogs as well as our guest.
 

 
I'm also entering this in Virginia's View die cut challenge.


Thanks for stopping by!
