It's Photo/Mood Board Week at JUGS

Carol M is our Host at Just Us Girls for our
Photo/Mood Board Challenge and it is
full of wonderful colours and earthly elements.
It's always interesting to see what is taken 
and created from it.

I love creating with corrugated cardboard and works perfectly
with my golden gilding flake leaf. I don't know who made it
as it was purchased at a craft show some years ago.
Cardboard has texture pastefor dimension.
Background stencil from AALL&Create.
Sentiment is Tim's Small Talk.
Inked the edges and adhered to white card base.
There is so much to choose from Carol's Mood Board.
Our Guest Stephanie and the Talented Team have
created an amazing array of lovely makes
so head over and check them out.
I am sure you will want to play with us this week.
In doing so you could be chosen as our Chic of the Week.
Thanks for dropping by -

Anything Goes and is

Here is my creation for our Sisterhood Challenge

For our Die Cuts Challenge
I have gone CAS with my DP background from Paper Rose.
Dies are Tim's Wildflowers/Mixed Media Die
and my wee bow from Waffle Flower
cut in black (bow shadowed in yellow)
Sentiment is Woodware Going to Seed
adhered to black card base.
Now to showcase my make as part of the
Altenew Collaboration
I saw this fabulous card over on Pinterest Here
 The background and the variegated colours used
are just my style so this is a case of Sharon White's card.
Also perfect as the stamp/die set used are from 
Altenew-  Beautiful Day Found Here

I heat embossed my florals with 
Lindy's Prairie Wildflowers Magical Set.
The background is a little hard to see and is 
Seth Apter's stamp SBS-020 inked
with heavy gesso onto white card stock and
 lightly sponged with Tim's Frayed Burlap.
Sentiment is from the Beautiful Day Set
 heat embossed in Gold onto vellum.
Added a pearl to the popped die cut flower,
some scattered coloured pearls and splatters.
Adhered to gold card base.
