It's a NEW YEAR at Just Us Girls

It's a New Year and a New Image at Just Us Girls.
Don't you just love it!  Thanks to our Talented Host Nancy.
Our first Challenge for the year is for
and as you can see it is THANK YOU.
My base is white ripple card stock.
I topped this with scoring the grey.
The pink background for my butterfly is 
a piece of card stock which has the
shaving cream technique.
My leaf is from Kaisercraft.
The butterfly from Marianne Designs is  
cut twice - once in white (on top) and again
(underneath) in vellum.
Sentiment is from GKD and I finished
with  different sized rhinestones
on the butterfly and background.
We have 2 Talented Guest Designer's
for January and they are
Deepti Malik - You can check out her Blog Here
and Vicki Parsons and her blog is Here
Welcome! So glad you have joined us this month.
Don't forget to pop over to Our Jugs Blog
to see what the Jugheads created
during our break.
I will still be swanning around in
Tropical Sunshine when this post goes live
so scheduled it some time ago.
Hope you all have had a relaxing Christmas break
and ready for a New Year playing with paper.
I am sure there are plenty of Thank You cards needed
so pop them in to our first challenge for 2016.
Will be checking to see if you are there!

Happy New Year Ina! Your card looks amazing! LOVE that pink background. I still need to try that shaving cream technique - it looks messy, but fun! LOL!

Wonderful card and love those colors together too!

Oh, I'm so envious of your swanning around!!! The thought of tropical sunshine is so appealing right now, as we have about 8" of snow on the ground, and seems like more coming daily. Your card is lovely. I really enjoy doing the shaving cream technique, and haven't done in quite awhile. Thanks for the inspiration.....just a beautiful design here!
