Photo Inspiration

Marisa has a beautiful photo for inspiration this week at Just Us Girls!
I was inspired by the orange leaves and the tablecloth.  I used Core'dinations Kraft Core for the embossed background and lightly sanded it to reveal the core.  I also used Core'inations Shattered for the leaves, sanding the edges and coloring the stems with a brown marker.
I also needed a wedding card and went with the leaves once again.  It's hard to see in the photo, but I used metallic rub ons in copper, gold and red on the leaves and added a strip of gold washi tape.
Just a reminder that Just Us Girls is starting up the Guest Designer position once again!!  Winning  Chic of the Week puts you in the running for the GD spot.  At the end of the month, after we have all of our Chic's of the weeks for that month, the JUGS girls will decide who the Guest Designer will be for the following month!   

How to play: Please copy and use our graphic on your post. You need to upload your new project [no back dating please] for this week's challenge to your online blog or to a public photo gallery. Leave a link that goes directly to your project in the Linky Tools form at the bottom of this post. If you upload to online galleries, please use the keyword or tag, JUGS212.
