Hi bloggers! It's time for the Just Us Girls challenge! After a trial run last weekend, Kristen and Pam and the whole team has worked to develop a new challenge site for weekly inspiration. AND, we really want you to participate...there's a $25 Papertrey Ink OR Gina K gift certificate up for grabs to tempt you....just sayin'... *wink*!
I also used the current CPS sketch to inspire my layout. Check out CPS 136 here.
I rotated the sketch for my card. :) It worked great! I loved all the layers inspired by the sketch and all the scallops inspired by the DP. Lots of corner rounder fun here too :) I scored with a cute scalloped leaf green button in my stash too! I love when I can find my supplies! ;)
Although you can't really see them, this little owl is four layers deep! Stamped once on the yellow DP base paper (legs), once on PTI pink bitty dots (wings), once, on PTI raspberry fizz (outer body) and once on pink and white polka dot from the my little shoebox DP (inner body). This is paper piecing, simple layers that have been detail cut to bring your stamped image to life! The My Cute Stamps images, in general, are great for coloring or paperpiecing. This stamp set is Little Forest Friends and includes the owl and the sentiment you see here. It's one of my favorites!
So are you ready to use pink and paper piece something? Head on over to the Just Us Girls blog...you can click on the JUGs blinkie in my side bar to get you there. :) You can get your own chic blinkie at the JUGs site and check out the buckets of inspiration from the JUGs girls this week. I can't wait to see what you make and good luck on the blog candy! Be sure and check out the rest of the JUGs blogs for endless inspiration:
