Photo Week #353 at Just Us Girls

It's Photo Week again at Just Us Girls
and Hosting this time round is Sue
choosing this photo below.

Now this really threw me and it took some time
before I decided how to create my card.
I took my inspiration from all the colours in the background
and decided to do some embossing and sponging.
I have used basic card stock here.
The embossing folder is another newbie from
the craft show - so too the little cogs.
I did come home with some great new craft items
and making good use of them too.
The embossing folder is Kaisercraft
as is the first sentiment die.
Cogs are Craft Emotions.
The other 2 sentiments were hand cut and
are from Inspired by Stamping.
I used various coloured distress inks and
added a touch of colour blast paste
to give the gold effect.

As always it would be great if you pop over to
Our Blog to see how Sue's photo
inspired our Guest Carol Mayne and
my super talented Team Mates.
Hope you get the chance to play and
you could be chosen as our
Chic of the Week going on to be
Our Guest in September.

Thanks for dropping in.
I love reading your comments too.
