Just Us Girls #333 - Word Week

Happy Saturday everyone!  It's Word Week over at Just Us Girls, and Maria has chosen what I think is going to be a popular word...Flowers!  Everyone loves flowers, right?
While this card looks simple, it took a couple of tries to do that banner panel!  Don't ask!  I stamped, colored with copics, and die cut that flower.  Then I die cut the banner and stamped the horizontal image, the leaves (which were stamped off before stamping on the banner to get the right color) and the sentiment.  The flower was added with dimensional tape.  I added sequins and star dust stickles on the flower center.  The white panel was embossed with an embossing folder.
I took my color palette from this week's Color Throwdown.
And my layout was from this week's CAS(E) this Sketch.
You can see more from our JUGs design team and our new guest, Steph Castro, on the JUGs blog.
Thanks for stopping by!

I am in awe of people who can combine challenges, and do it so well. This is lovely! Love the embossing and, of course, that pretty banner.

Lisa, it turned out beautiful, but IKWYM, you take a look at the finished product and think: that looks, lovely, clean and straightforward, but...:)!! Again, just beautiful, and the sparkle is also happening all around here this morning with a coating of hoar frost on everything.

Beautiful card, Lisa! Such a brilliant interpretation of the sketch! When I looked at it, I just couldn't see what to do with it! Your card is terrific! Love the pink flower and the sentiment on the panel! Now that the design is done wouldn't this make a great set for a gift?
