Just Us Girls 88 Woodgrain Technique ...Congratulations to the bride to be

Hey all!  Time for a technique challenge with Just Us Girls!  This week it's based on a woodgrain technique shared by the fab Gina K over at Stamp TV.

I went for a soft shabby wood shutters look and took my woodgrain to the pink side...

Try as I may, my camera didn't pick up as much subtle shabby pink woodgrain as I would like to share with you but oh!  It is like spun cotton candy I tell you.  This card is a little something for the bride to be (love that silhouette image from Jenni Bowlin) and, I will admit, a hopeful entry into Papercrafts Gallery Idol!  Eeek!  Are you entering this year?  I know the competition will be stiff but I thought I'd give it a go.  I hope to see all  my talented papercrafting friends there!
OK back to woodgrain...can you see it a little here?
*sigh* such a pretty group of items...glittery frame, crinkly seam binding, floral papers and PINK woodgrain!  I hope you'll join us and try this fun technique this week.
and guest designer, Rosemary!
