Just Us Girls


My month of guesting at Just Us Girls went by so quickly and I want to say a big THANK YOU to the team for having me join them!  I enjoyed each and every challenge!  This last week is photo inspiration week and this fall scene is filled with gorgeous fall elements!  


I was inspired by the basket to use TCW's Mini Basketweave stencil with Wendy Vecchi's metallic gold embossing paste.  Sunflowers are my favorite fall flower, so I had to go with Flourishes "Sunflowers" stamp set.  I colored with Copics then fussy cut the images.  I sponged Pumpkin Pie ink on a Martha Stewart doily tag then layered some black thread behind the popped sunflowers. 

Be sure and check out what the other designers have created on the Just Us Girls challenge blog!  Hope to see you in the gallery!

WOW, Wanda, this is beautiful!!!! That stencil is lovely and you have used it so creatively!!!! I really love everything about this card!! The sunflowers are stunning, I love the doily and the twine really looks great - love the one enamel dot on the twine. The sentiment is perfect on the little tag and I like the font - goes so nicely with the rest of the card!! This is really so beautiful, Wanda!!!

Have a great weekend!!!
