Just Us Girls Guest Designer

Saturday, May 21, 2011

I'm loving my guest design spot with Just Us Girls Challenge, it's definitely encouraging me to step outside my comfort zone. This week's challenge is a color challenge, RAINBOW (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, plus neutrals!) that's a whole lot of color!! Luckily I had some rainbow ribbon!

For the label I used Spellbinders Labels 14 die to cut out some green felt. I used Holiday Labels No.14 by Waltzingmouse Stamps for the smaller label. I masked the edges of the label when I stamped the little sun motifs from Half Pint Heros by Waltzingmouse Stamps. The polka dot background is stamped with Gingham & Co.

The sunshine text is also from Half Pint Heros. The fab birthday sentiment that I cut out is from Say it Loud by Waltzingmouse Stamps. The top half of the background is stamped with Text-It.

I've had those big yellow buttons in my stash for a while, they seemed to fit with this bold card!! : ) Don't forget to check out the fabulous creations from the Just Us Girls design team, they're sure to inspire you. I'll be back later with the new sketch from the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and my card!
