Just Us Girls #312 - Photo Week

This time at Just Us Girls it's Photo Week.  Vicki is our hostess and she has chosen a beautiful photo as our inspiration.

We will be saying goodbye to our Guest Designer, Melissa Lane, at the completion of this challenge.  I would like to thank her for sharing her wonderful talent with us.  We have enjoyed seeing her beautiful cards.

Here's my card

What a great photo and aren't the colors striking!  I used a background stamp from MFT to create the striped background.  I thought it would be a perfect backdrop for some lovely yellow flowers.  I pulled out a favorite set of mine from PTI called Delightful Dahlia.  After I finished stamping, the ink colors I chose were a little on the light side, so I added some shading with a copic marker.  The sentiment was embossed in black on a strip of Vellum.

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

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