Guest Designer – JUGS Challenge #312 Photo Week

Hi! I’m excited to be here with you today with my 4th post as a Just Us Girls September Guest Designer! I have had a great time at JUGs this month and I hope that you’ve been inspired to play along with the challenges. This week is Photo Week Challenge #312:


I had a lot of fun making this card and I hope you enjoy seeing it. 🙂


I used PTI’s Flower Favorites stamp set, along with a Close to My Heart set entitled Your Own Kind of Beautiful. The embossing folder is from We R Memory Keepers Spotted 2-Pack.

Here’s a quick slide show of some of the steps I used in putting this card together. I’m going to play this over at Seize the Birthday’s Anything Goes.

I’m also going to play at Fusion’s Peacock Dynasty challenge this week.
