Life Is Better-JUGS


Hello, I am here today with a very pretty Photo Inspired card for the latest Just Us Girls challenge. Bobby sure knows how to pick’em. There is so much to this photo that you can pull from and be inspired by.

Here is a closeup view of my card.

Card Details: This card came together better than I had it planned out in my head. I have this great pack of DSP from SU that I knew I wanted to incorporate in my design. First, I cut out two tags using a MFT die. Next, I got out my relatively new to me garden themed die set from Sizzix called Garden Shed, to pull in some of the elements from the photo The sentiment and dew drops are from Honey Bee Stamps. The silver twine finished it off nicely and I went to Hobby Lobby the other evening to pick some up just for this card. I may have gotten one or two other things while I was there. LOL

I am also linking up over at Happy Little Stampers for their Anything Goes with Dies, as my card is nearly all die-cuts.

I hope you will pop on over to Just Us Girls and check out my fabulous teammates cards…and play along. Before I go I need to say thanks to Claire for being such a wonderful guest! We really have enjoyed having you with us this month. Thanks for joining us.

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’
