Just Us Girls #74 sketch....{to thine own self}

Hello friends!  Time for a fabulous sketch with Just Us Girls!

Gotta say, the symmetry on this one was challenging for me.  As you may already know, I rarely do "orderly" on my cards because the need to get it *perfect* really confuses my pile it up and scatter it about brain!  But, I found, it's good to get out of one's habit once and a while.  Thanks for the challenge Kristen!  I hope I didn't scatter your beautiful sketch too much!

You see? I bent a couple sketch rules but, as the cards says, *to thine own self be kind*....so I allowed myself a couple of liberties and I love this card!  Thank you Kristen for providing us with such a lovely foundation to create upon this week!

Details....Want2Scrap bling swirls and pearl adorn this floral cameo cut from a CTMH western set called Lovely Buckles!  Plus, more of that Fancy tags two set from Spellbinders! Isn't the scroll work divine?

That's it for today *peeps*.  Be sure and stop by the JUGs design team for incredible inspiration as well as our Guest designer for March!  The talented Alicia Scritchfield!

Tata for now!  Have a great day!

Oh my Dana - I have to spend several minutes just taking in all the elements you incorporate into your cards - there are so many lovely ones. THis is a gorgeous end product right down to the birdie in the corner and the hat pin in the middle. :-)

I think you scattered this challenge beautifully Dana! The bling and birdie alone are stunning! Fab job girl!

Kristin Eberline said...

Girl, you pile it up and scatter it about all you want!!! It wouldn't be Dana-magnificent any other way :] This is spectacular in all of it's layered glory. That cameo is a fantastic jumping off point...and the hat pins, the bird charm and that seam binding finish it off beautifully ♥

This is gorgeous! You do that shabby, vintage look so well that challenges me no matter how hard I try! Love that ruffly, yummy, scrunchy seam binding bow too!
