Just Us Girls #229 - Photo

Welcome to this week's Just Us Girls Challenge

Lisa is our hostess this week, and she's come up with a fun Photo Inspiration for us.   Take a look!

Here's my card

I knew I had to have some kind of stripe when I saw that top spool.  I used my PTI Center Stage Cover Plate and cut four different colors using Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury White, Turquoise Sea, Sweet Mango and Honey Mustard card stock.  I created my background from those various pieces.  The stamp set I used is called Sweet Friend from GKD.  I enjoyed working with the pretty color combo in this photo.  When I made this card about a week ago, we were under yet another Winter Storm Warning.  Happily, the temperature climbed into the 50's today.  I think, maybe, there is hope that Spring is finally coming.
