It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday Post for
Just Us Girls - Photo Week

Vicki is Hosting and chosen this gorgeous bright photo
for our Inspiration.
What I made isn't what I had originally planned
but that's how it goes sometimes.
I was going to focus on those squares in the background
till my card went in a totally new direction.
I decided to concentrate on the lovely orange daisies instead.
I will start at the back with the embossed Kaisercraft Leaf 
then added the black backing which was the shaving cream
technique using Tim's Black Soot reinker and a snippet of white
from a SU punch.
My flower head was cut several times from the
CUTplorations die - Trendy Spring Blooms
adding a few MS leaves. 
The centre of the flower is flower soft.
This was backed with black and added some yellow cotton.
The Best Wishes die is from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Pop over and see what our April Guest Karren
and the Jugheads created and come join us in the Gallery.
Hope to see yours there.

What a cheerful card this is, SS. I love your bg layers and how your card took it's own direction to help you create this art. That orange flower is a perfect focal image. Perfect interpretation of the photo.

So many wonderful details to look at on your lovely card, Ina. I especially love what I can see of the shaving cream panel. It a great tribute to the vases in the photo, or the pictures, whichever.

I think it's great how a card can start off in one direction and then end up different...All courtesy of the fabulous inspiration photo. The shaving foam layer looks great and love the vibrancy of the pretty daisy. The die cut sentiment looks fabulous in the orange too x Gorgeous card Ina x

Oh just look at this cheery, springy goodness!!! I really love your take on the photo, those orange daisies are THE BOMB! I love how a card evolves, so many times differently than what we had in mind. That's call creativity. Well done, my dear. You let your creativity run wild here!!!

This is super cool Ina. Love the black shaving foam piece as the background. It really lets your orange flower explode - with such dimension too! Love it!
