Just Us Girls Challenge......JUGS6 34

Mona Pendleton | Friday, November 6, 2009 @ 10:00 PM | ,

Hi Ladies! Thanks to all who played along last week in the Just Us Girls Wild Card Challenge! I really enjoyed viewing all of the entries! Soooo many GORGEOUS creations! Saturday rolls around before we know it & it's time again for a NEW Just Us Girls challenge! This week Maria is our lovely Hostess & she has challenged us to create using her AMAZING sketch! I hope you can join along in the fun this week :) For complete details, please visit the Just Us Girls challenge site & be sure to visit ALL the DT girls blogs to see how they created their project! Thanks for looking! We look forward to seeing what you can do with Maria's sketch!

Here's my Give Thanks card:

For my main background, I used a piece of DP resembling newspaper print from K&Company. Hopefully that will help stream line my stamping, as I would like to duplicate this card :) I paper pieced the pumpkins however, I used the BossKut Leaf die to make all those lil' leafs!

For color & some texture inspiration, I referred to the picture of the Thanksgiving Pumpkin Luminarias from Martha Stewart Living via Carolina Panache featured this week as the Tuesday Trigger at the Moxie Fab World Blog. For inspiration & a whole lot of fun, please be sure to visit the Moxie Fab World Blog & all the other BEAUTIFUL entries.

I love the soft-subtle green ghords with the dull yellow glow shining through. I attempted to recreate the lattice-like pattern using a Fiskars border punch. LOL

Ingredients Used: Stamps: PTI Fall Elegance, SU Fancy Flexible Phrases Paper: K&Company DP, SU Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Mellow Moss, Sage Shadow, Natural's Ivory Ink: SU Chocolate Chip, Ranger/Tim Holtz Antique Photo Sprinkles: BossKut Leaf die, Spellbinders Scalloped Circle & Circles nesties, Fiskars border punch, PTI button, Offray ribbon, gold cord & brads from stash
