Just Us Girls #290 - Photo Week

This week at Just Us Girls it's Photo Week.  Maria is our hostess and she has chosen a beautiful picture for our inspiration.

Here's my card

I love tulips, but have no luck at all growing them.  I planted several in our front flower bed, but all I get are stems and leaves.  They don't bloom!  Our house faces the north and they don't get enough sun. We have big trees in the backyard, so no good place for them there either.

The stamp set I chose is from Power Poppy and is called Tulips and Peonies.  This is a beautiful image.  I put it on a pretty Spellbinders die cut and colored with Copic markers. The patterned paper is from Basic Grey.  I added some gold mesh ribbon, a button and some pearls that I colored with a gold Pitt pen.

Please visit the Just Us Girls blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team and our GD, Kathy Schweinfurth, have made this week.

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