Just Us Girls #345 - Photo Week

 Hi everyone!  I'm the hostess at Just Us Girls this week for our Photo Week challenge.  I chose this pretty, sunny photo of a craft room.
 
Here's a close-up of the photo so you can see more details.
 
What caught my attention was the yellow wallpaper and those pretty posies!  I started by stamping the background with yellow ink and an old Stampin' Up background stamp.  I then die cut a window in the center so I could create a shaker card.  After I created the shaker, I realized I should have added more sequins and glued some down so they didn't all fall to the bottom!  The flowers were stamped and layered onto the card with dimensionals, and the sentiment was stamped onto a banner.  I added more sequins and Wink of Stella on the flowers.  I'm giving this to my mom because she fell (again!) and broke her shoulder.  She's currently in a rehab facility because she can't use her walker and needs more care.  Hopefully she'll be back at her assisted living facility soon, and I'm also hoping this cheers her up.  She loves the color yellow, too!
 
I used this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
 
You can see more from our JUGs DT and our May guest on the JUGs blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

This is stunning! I love how you stamped the background and layered the flowers in the lower corner of the shaker window. Great choice of photo for our inspiration this week.

I love this. The pink and yellow together are so cheerful!

Isn't it funny that it's a craft desk but most of us focused on the flowers. I guess it's because we all have flowers stamps of some kind. I love that you made a shaker and your background stamp was perfect for the wallpaper

Best of luck to your mom! This is such a wonderfully cheerful card for her - I just know it well help. Such a fabulous idea to add a shaker in the middle of the sketch. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
