Just Us Girls #242 - Photo Inspiration

Look at the great photo Vicki chose for our photo inspiration challenge this week!
She, also, celebrated her birthday on May 22nd.
Happy Birthday, Vicki!  Hope you had a wonderful day!

Here's my card

I pulled out my PTI Center Stage Cover Plate die and cut it in both black and white, so I could make an in-laid background.  I love this die!  It is so much fun to play with and doesn't it make a striking background! The sweet tulips are from GKD A Year of Flowers 2, and the vase is from Buds & Vases.  They were colored with Copic markers.  The Hello greeting is from GKD Vertical Greetings & Things.

Please visit the Just Us Girls page to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team and our GD, Barbara, have made this week.  I hope you will be inspired and want to play along.  We would love to see how this photo inspires you!

Just a reminder:  If you win Chic of the Week in any of our May challenges, you are in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of July.
