Just Us Girls #390 - Photo Week

Dear Ones~
This week is photo week over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Chris has provided us with this really cool photo to use for inspiration.
And here's my card:
I studied and studied that photo. There is so much going on and so many possibilities. I finally chose to focus on the gray and yellow, and the sort of geometric designs through out. I stamped the background zigzag strip with a stamp from Paper Wishes using Basic Gray ink from Stampin' Up. Then I just shuffled through my patterned papers until I found something I liked and finished it off by embellishing with some die cut flowers and leaves.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
Stash Gray and Yellow Card Stock
Kaiser Craft Shining Bright Patterned Papers
HOTP Happy Patterns Stamp
SU Basic Gray Ink
SU Botanical Builder Framelits
GKD The Wetlands Stamp for Greeting
Yellow Nuvo Crystal Drops

Please visit the JUST US GIRLS blog to see the wonderful examples that our April Guest Designer Laurie, and the rest of the team have made this week. And remember, if you win Chic of the Week in any of our April challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of June!!   Good luck, and I hope to see you there.
