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.
