Dear Ones~
I just got done picking some wild lilacs that grow down the road from us. The living room smells heavenly!!

Today's offering was made for the Just Us Girls Challenge. This week it's a photo for inspiration.

Here's my card:

When I saw the photo I immediately thought of this die from Spellbinders called Medallion One. The rug in the photo reminded me of a Moroccan Bazaar, so I used the Spellbinders Label 9 dies for the shape. Truth be told I really don't like this card, I think it's boring. But there you just are. You can't win them all, right? The fillagree background is done with a die called Mixed Media by Sizzix. I love that set.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Turquoise Sea, White and Tomato Soup Card Stock
GKD Birthday Blessings Stamp Set for Greeting
Spellbinders Labels 9 Die Set
Spellbinders Medallion One Shapabilities
Sizzix Mixed Media Die Set
GKD Turquoise Sea Ink

Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments. And happy Memorial Day! Thank you to those who paid the ultimate price for us - there are no words!!!!!
