Just Us Girls Challenge #216 - Photo Inspiration

Vicki has a beautiful photo for our inspiration this week

I was really inspired by the colors and the polka dot and stripes.  I embossed some Core'dinations White Wash cardstock and sanded.  I just recently found this fun burlap paper by DCWV at Joann's to die cut the star, it's burlap on one side backed with kraft paper.  Had to use some of my Tim Holtz mini garland for some glitz.  The die cut branches are Core'dinations Shattered.
Welcome back again this week to our Guest Designer Nancy Penir!  Check her card out here:

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, JUGS21t. After you post to Linky Tools you may also leave a comment here.

Deadline to be considered for the "Chic of the Week" is 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, November 21st. The Linky Tools form will close at that time. Our top pick, "Chic of the Week", will be announced on the following Friday morning.

Thanks for playing with us this week!  We can't wait to see what you create!

Great card, Sue!! I love the burlap star-such a rustic look! With the pine boughs added there's a nice movement to your card! The aqua dotted piece finishes things nicely!
