It's WORD Week at Just Us Girls

Our Hostess for this week's WORD CHALLENGE is
Cheryl
Now we all know how much we all
LOVE using Twine.
 
 
It seems like an AGE since I made a Shabby Chic card
so that in mind I went for some gorgeous dp
and the rest was easy. My favourite colour is purple
so this dp was perfect.
 
Here is how I made my card.
Card stock is a mushroom colour. I topped it with
the beautiful DP's from Inspired by Stamping -
Spring Lilacs distressed and inked then added
a silver piece of torn corrugated paper.
The die cut behind the flower is a
laser cut one I bought at a craft show.
This and the dp were inked in Memento Sweet Plum.
The flower is one I bought online already made up
with those pearls and rhinestones.
Have added a touch of iridescent medium
around the edges of the DP.
Added my twine in 2 different colours to match my paper.
Finished it off with pearls and rhinestones on the corners.
 
 
Our Guest this month at Just Us Girls
is Tenia Nelson from Jazzy Paper Designs
Hop over to see how she used her twine
and check out the Design Team's creations -
be inspired and head off and enter this weeks challenge
for you to be in the running for our Chic of the Week
and you are in the running to be our Guest in July.
 
We look forward to seeing you there.
