Just Us Girls #296 - Word Week

This time at Just Us Girls it's Word Week.  Nancy is our hostess and the word she has chosen is Summer.  There are lots of fun ways to go with this one.  My first choice was ice cream!

I would like to welcome Ros Crawford as our Guest Designer for the month of June.  Welcome, Ros!

Here's my card

I love ice cream and as you can see from my card, chocolate is front and center because it is my flavor of choice.  I just received this fun set from Reverse the ice cream cones. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to give the cones some texture.

Please visit the Just Us Girls blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team and our GD, Ros Crawford, have made this week.  I hope you will be inspired and want to play along.

If you win Chic of the Week in any of our June challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of August.  Good luck!

The Recipe:
Reverse Confetti Love & Ice Cream
RC Circles & Scallops and Double Edge Scallop Border dies
Doodlebug Sweetheart patterned paper
Cuttlebug Love Triangle EF
Pretty Pink Posh Sweetheart sequins
