Just Us Girls #321 - Photo Week

This time at Just Us Girls it's Photo Week.  Vicki is our hostess and she has chosen a fabulous photo for our inspiration.

With the completion of this challenge, we will be saying goodbye to our Guest Designer, Louise Hodge.  We enjoyed having her with us this past month.  Thanks so much, Louise!

I love this photo!  Everything about it inspired me, and my card is very literal. I sprayed the background with some Shimmer Spray and it is very shimmery in real time.  I sponged Distress inks in Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry to create the background and then added the circles using GKD white pigment ink.  

Please visit the Just Us Girls blog to see the wonderful cards the rest of the team and our GD, Louise Hodge, have made this week.  I hope you will be inspired and come play along.

If you win Chic of the Week in any of our November challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as one of our two Guest Designers for the month of January.  Good luck!
