Just to say 'Thanks'

By the time this goes Live you will all know that I had been asked
by Loll & Bonnie from CAS Water Colour Blog to be their
 Guest Designer for November. I was happy to say Yes.
The flower I used for our 
 at Just Us Girls was gifted to me from them
 Thanks You So Much. 
These lovely colours were chosen by Angie
who is Host this week..
My flower was cut several times 
inking around the edges and layered.
The background has been stenciled with white texture paste 
(which is a little hard to see)
 lightly sponged with Tim's Antique Linen.
Behind the flowers is a leaf cut from a shimmery textured
gold paper and is from Fancy That - Leafy Swirl
My backing paper is turquoise textured card stock.
I inked the sentiment with Tim's Peacock Feathers and added
a touch of PearlEx powder. 
This was all put together onto brown card stock.
Pop on over to Our Blog to see what 
Our November Guest Trina Pham
and the Team created.
With such a lovely colour combination I 
hope you get time to play with us this week.
By the way! The Jugheads are taking December off so
those chosen as a Chic of the Week  in November
will be in the running for 2 Guest Spots when we
come back rested and raring to go again in January.

Thanks for dropping in today

That flower is so life-like Ina, and I love all your extra details like the embossing paste background, gold leaves and textured cardstock.
