Just Us Girls #307 - Photo Week

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

My card

I decided to make a card with leaves gently falling.  I used an emboss resist technique to stamp the leaves and then sponged them with some Fall colors.

Please visit the Just Us Girls blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team and our GD, Karen, have made this week.  I hope you will come and play along with us.

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

The Recipe:

  8. Hi Sharyn, Have been hearing about you from Brenda W, and seeing the pictures of you ladies enjoying a nice lunch. Finally had a chance to come over for a visit and peruse your lovely cards. Really admire this gorgeous leaf card...that's a beautiful stamp set, used so magnificently against that soft sponged background. Really highlights the leaves so nicely. Just became your newest follower, and hope you'll find time to pop over my way! (I bet Brenda has given you all the low-down on who I am! She did for you too so I'm looking forward to getting to know a new friend too!) TFS
