Time for a new Just Us Girls sketch challenge hosted by our lovely Kathryn!
Isn't it such a wonderful sketch?! Here's my take:
I wasn't feelin' my mojo a few days ago but thanks to this lovely Basic Grey porcelain DP, a bit of inspiration struck in time for me to get my card finished :) I love how the paper is kind of romantic feeling - perfect for an anniversary card, or at least that's what I went with. I made a flower out of white tissue paper (from a PTI stamp purchase - yay recycling!) that was cut with Spellbinders Blossoms Dies. I sponged the edges with sweet blush ink and placed a rhinestone brad in the center. Then I bunched the tissue paper up around the brad to wrinkle it up. I first saw these on Mona Pendleton's blog; there's a link to her awesome tutorial HERE. They're really quite easy and versatile, not to mention BEAU-TI-FUL!
The ribbon is one of my new favorite things - Hug Snug Seam Binding colored up with copics (R20).
It's the beginning of the month so that means we get to introduce our August guest designer, Jo Westfoot! Welcome Jo - we're so happy to have you join us for the month! Can't wait to see all of your wonderful creations!
