Just Us Girls - Happy Anniversary!


JUGS BlinkieGood morning!  I hope you are having a great day!  After all the running around last week getting everything ready for Easter this week seems like a breeze to me.  There are lots of left overs from the big meal so I don't even have to cook today!   It's great to have some extra "me" time and get to play along in a few challenges!  Today I'm playing along with Just Us Girls Challenge #131.  Here's a photo of the sketch this week.

I started my design with a beautiful strip of ribbon given to me by my good friend JJ Bolton from the Ribbon Girls blog.  It is a beautiful satin brocade with gold in it.  I played with all the color in the ribbon in my design - especially that beautiful gold.  I used a Copic marker to color the pins and the pearl in the center of the flower to get just the shade I wanted.  The pins are stuck in a piece of pop up foam on the underside of the heart.   The fancy Serendipity scroll heart is stuck down on a foam dot placed strategically under the flower. 

Thanks for stopping by to have a look!  Enjoy the beautiful Spring weather!

Jeanne

Look at you! I knew that ribbon was going to the right person:) Love it! Your gold details are just fabby:) Lovely, lovely, lovely!

BTW, I made a bunch of cards for some girl friends with the felt flowers and they think I'm a crafty genius:)

Your card has so many lovely touches on it from the gold foil heart to the ribbon and stick pin accents. I'm going to have to give foil a go because you really make beautiful pieces for your cards with it, TFS Jeanne!
