Just Us Girls #303 - Photo Week

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

We are saying goodbye to our Guest Designer, Linda Beeson, with the completion of this challenge.  I would like to thank her for sharing her wonderful talent with us.

Here's my card

Isn't this a fun picture!  I wish I had a porch like this.  I made a stencil using the Center Stage Cover Plate from PTI and sponged Sweet Mango ink onto my white card base.  I used a background stamp from PTI called Basics Art Deco and some Blue Raspberry card stock and ink to make the blue panel. The flower stamp is, also, from PTI and is called Cutting Garden.  I have had this one for a while and not used it before.  

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

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