Hi everyone! It's Saturday, so it's time for another challenge from Just Us Girls! And one of our girls is celebrating her birthday today...Dana Gustafson! So, our challenge is to use dry embossing on your card with a twist...make it a birthday card in honor of Dana! We tricked her today and told her the twist was to make a thank you card! I hope she was surprised!
Happy Birthday Dana!
Here is my card for Miss Dana which will be in the mail this weekend! I've been itching to use this image from Stampavie for a long time! It's called Surprise and it's been sitting on my desk waiting for this perfect challenge! For the dry embossing part of the challenge, I used the swiss dots cuttlebug folder on Cordinations paper. I sanded it a bit, but it doesn't show up very well in the picture. I don't know the name of this beautiful dp that started my color combo. I purchased it at my LSS in the summer and the back of it is just gorgeous! I hated to cover it up! I just love how bright and fun this card is! Oh, and I used my own sketch! This is something that is very difficult for me, so I'm very proud of myself! LOL!!
If you want to see more inspiration from the Just Us Girls team, stop over at the JUGs blog. We'd love for you to make a card honoring Dana's birthday. Just link up your direct post to Mr. Linky on the JUGs blog. If you post to an online gallery, use the key word JUGS7.
Also, please don't forget our Charity Challenge. We are trying to raise some money for a fellow stamper, Sarah Anderson, who lost her son recently. Check out the challenge on our JUGs blog here. There is some blog candy being offered by the JUGs team and from one of our followers, Gabby. (For some reason, I cannot connect to her blog...it keeps freezing up on me. You can click on her link in Mr. Linky to see what she's offering up as blog candy.) So please check it out!
Oh, and yesterday was my hubby's birthday! Friday the 13th! He kind of had a bad day hunting, too! Happy Birthday, Darling!
Thanks for stopping in today. Have a great weekend!
