Just Us Girls Challenge #223

Sharyn has a fun technique challenge for us this week at Just Us Girls!

I feel like I need these bright colors as I sit here in the cold and snow.  Stamped the SU flamingo on Neenah Solar white and then onto a couple different scraps of dp from my stash.  Pieced the dp pieces onto the flamingo and balloon. Colored the beak and legs with a Primacolor marker and the hat with Sakura Stardust gel pens in aqua and orange.  I first stamped the "HAPPY" (Pink Paislee) directly onto the image panel, but messed it up, so re-stamped it on another piece of cardstock and trimmed it to fit across the top.   It looked too plain so decided to add some dots with a Sakura Stardust aqua gel pen.  Added a strip of washi tape and tied on some twine.  Stamped "birthday" (CAS-ual Fridays) with Memento Rose Bud and Versamark and added some Stampendous Crystal embossing powder on GK Wild Dandelion.  Die cut the edge of the GK Passionate Pink layer and added Liquid Pearls.

Remember that our Chics of the Week have the chance to be a Guest Designer, so the more you play the more chances you have to be a JUGs Guest Designer!
