Just Us Girls #329 - Word Week

Do you make a lot of Valentines?  I make a few, and I love when I have a challenge to direct me.  This week, Just Us Girls did that with our word week challenge.  Vicki chose Valentine as the word and I pulled out a cool heart die for this challenge.
 
The die is from Simon Says Stamp and it's called Danish Heart.  You die cut it out twice and weave the pieces together.  I used two complimentary papers from a Valentine paper pad and used a strip of pattern paper on the side.  The heart was popped up with fun foam and I put some washi tape behind it.  I added the sentiment and sequins.  There are star dust stickles on the stamped hearts. 
 
I used the current CAS(E) this Sketch for my layout.
 
You can see more from our design team and guest, Pamellia, on the JUGs blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
