Just Us Girls #433 - Photo Week

Hi friends!  It's Photo Week over at Just Us Girls.  Bobby chose these photos that so evokes the spring season (hoping it gets here soon!).
 
I wanted to make an Easter card using the photo with the eggs as my inspiration.  I pulled out PTI's Etched Egg dies and die cut them from colored cardstock.  I also liked the blue stripes on that saucer in the photo, so I used Broken China oxide ink and a stripe stencil and created my background.  For the sentiment, I embossed it on vellum with liquid platinum embossing powder.  I added Nuvo drops, but wish I had used sequins.  I have to say that I'm not crazy about how this card turned out.  I guess it was the two glasses of wine I had before making it (it was a tough day at school!).
 
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our March guest on the JUGs blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
