Just Us Girls #234 - Wild Card

Welcome to this week's Just Us Girls Challenge

Since this is the 5th Saturday of the month, it's Wild Card time!  Marisa is our hostess for a fun new challenge. This week we are to make a "skinny" card measuring 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" or 3 1/2" x 6".

I really like the size of this card, mine is 3 1/2" x 5 1/2".  I think it works well with the large single image.  The stamp set is from Flourishes and is called Enjoy the Ride.  I recently bought it when they were having their big sale. The minute I saw it, I thought what a fabulous birthday card it would make for a little girl.  

I hope everyone has a great weekend and finds some time to be creative!
