Just Us Girls #603 - Photo Week

 Hello!  Just Us Girls has a new Photo challenge this week, and Ina chose this photo of beautiful basket of what I believe are lilacs.  Their scent is heavenly!

I wasn't surprised to see some purple in the photo Ina chose, because I know she loves that color!  I'm glad to use purple because I don't use it often enough.  As you can see, I chose to use the colors from the photo...two shades of purple, green and soft brown (as seen in the basket).  I used the Harvest Wreath turnabout stamp set for my card today.  After stamping the wreath, I die cut a leaf and some tall leaves to add to the center.  I stamped the sentiment, die cut it, and added it to the center as well.  I added that panel onto a kraft mat.  Crystals and shimmer spray were added for that sparkle I love so much!

You can see more from the JUGs design team and our September guest, Loll, on the JUGs blog.  This is Loll's last week with us, and I'd like to say thanks for all the beautiful cards you created for our September challenges!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Harvest Wreath turnabout (C&9th)
Paper:  Recollections white, desert storm
Ink:  Sweet sixteen, flirty fuchsia, grass skirt, sand castle
Accessories:  Harvest Wreath dies (C&9th), stitched rectangle (MFT), crystals, shimmer spray

That wreath looks gorgeous in those colors, Lisa, and I love how you added extra leaves for dimension. BTW, your card isn't linked on the blog post.

Beautiful card Lisa! Love the mix of colours and the gorgeous stamps to create your wreath. Adding the die-cuts on top adds love of depth and dimension. Fabulous card! Thanks so much for your kind words. I have really enjoyed my time as Guest Designer at JUGS!

Such a great job with your turnabout card, Lisa. I love that you pulled all the colors from the pic. Have a great week!

Oh Lisa this card is just so beautiful in all it's colours and layout. You nailed this weeks photo challenge for sure. Fantabulous!

I love your beautiful wreath in those colors! The addition of the die cuts and placement of the sentiment strip is perfect! Love the direction you took from the photo.
