Just Us Girls #529 - Photo Week

Hi friends!  It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls and I'm the hostess for this challenge.  I chose this landscape covered with pretty tulips.  I think tulips are the ultimate sign of Spring.
I was so happy to get my hands on this layering stencil set from Simon Says Stamp.  There is a layering stamp set to go along with it as well, but I only used the stencils.  I used distress oxide inks with the stencils and actually started with a larger piece of cardstock and used the stencils twice side-by-side to get a fuller bunch of flowers.  Once I was done stenciling, I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle and added the die cut sentiment (die cut and stacked three times for dimension).  I added shimmer to the sentiment and flowers then added the clear sequins.  I have many birthday cards on hand and decided to get some sympathy cards done. I made this yesterday, and today I found out my former co-worker’s father passed away from Covid-19. I didn’t think I’d need this card this soon. Stay safe everyone!

You can see more from our JUGs design team and our guest for this month, Vicky, on the JUGs blog.  This is Vicky's last week with us, and I'd like to thank her for her beautiful cards this month.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh my goodness Lisa, this is a stunner of a card and I was amazed to read that you used a stencil. I'm so sorry you needed the card. What a horrible thing this wretched virus is.
Thank you so much for letting me come and play with the grown up girls this month - it's been lovely :)

These colors made a beautiful sympathy card

WOW! I would have guessed this to be a layering stamp, rather than a stencil! Absolutely beautiful. I'm so sorry that you had 'need' for this card; so many sad things happening. Your flowers, however, are uplifting...

Those tulips are beautiful! So amazing that this is a stencil. I'm sure this will be a great comfort to your former co-worker. It's so scary when you start to know people personally who have contracted this monster.

Beautiful card for such a sad occasion. So sad to read you had to use it so quickly Lisa.
