Just Us Girls #328 - Wild Card Week!

Happy Saturday!  Since it's the fifth Saturday of the month, Just Us Girls has a special Wild Card Challenge where the hostess gets to choose any challenge she wishes.  Chris is our hostess and she chose this fun Tic Tac Toe challenge.  Many options to choose from !
 
 I went with the middle vertical column of die-cuts, stamps, and flowers. I needed a sympathy card for an elderly friend's brother, so I thought flowers would be a nice choice.  I've had this set from My Favorite Things for a while and used it for the first time!  I die cut a bunch of the dies then played around with positioning it around a half circle.  I layered it onto a piece of pattern paper.  The base looked a little bare, so I used the spritzer tool to add some color.  I've also added some star dust stickles to the flower for some sparkle.
 
I followed the sketch from the Fusion Challenge.
 
You can see more from the design team on the JUGs blog.  You also see designs from our January guests, Vicki and Deepti.  This is their last challenge with us, and we were so happy to have them join us with their beautiful work all month!
 
Thanks for stopping by!
