Just Us Girls #261 - Word Week

Hello!  This week is Word Week over at Just Us Girls, and the word is Celebrate.  It's an appropriate word also because we have something to celebrate over at JUGs.  We have two new designers joining us!  Please welcome Chris Dring and Ina Grehan to the team!
 
Now on to the card!  I just purchased this cover plate die from Taylored Expressions and thought it would be a good one to use for the celebrate word.  It's a really cool die because the frame, balloons and strings are all attached.  You get two single balloons also, which is what I used for the mustard, blue and green balloons.  The background is something new I learned from the current Online Card Classes.  It's done with copic markers and was super easy to create.  I felt the sentiment could be used for a birthday or any special day.
 
I chose my colors from the Fusion Challenge.
 
 
Please stop by these blogs to see more inspiration.  We also have a new Guest Designer this month!
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

That is a cool die and the sentiment is perfect. Thae coloured background is amazing...not sure how you did this with copics it looks like a stencil or masking. So we will be seeing some fab colouring from you...looking forward to it. Hope work is going o.k Lisa xx
