Boy am I glad the weekend is here. It wasn't a bad week, it's just that I love my weekends! I hate waking up to an alarm! Anyway, there's a new challenge over at Just Us Girls. This week is our word week, and Sue chose the word "stripes".
Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card. Fortunately, I had this great Prayers die and stamp set. First, I had to create some stripes for the challenge. I don't know if you can see them, but I used a stripes stencil and some white texture paste to create them on the main panel. While that was drying, I created some gold paper by covering some white paper with Versamark and gold embossing powder. The prayers word was die cut from that as well as the little heart. I die cut and stamped the flower and leaves. I added the pattern paper circle and banner. That main panel was backed with a piece of coral paper.
I'm playing in a couple of other challenges. I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
And I used the color palette from Color Throwdown.
And then I thought I'd enter this into Jennifer McGuire's Share Handmade Kindness Challenge. This card is going to my cousin who lost her husband recently.
You can see more from our design team and our new guest for November, Louise Hodge, on the JUGs blog.
