Just Us Girls challenge #211

Hi there and welcome to the weekend!  I am so happy that I don't have to work today!  This week Just Us Girls has a color challenge for you!  Please visit our blog to take a look at the gorgeous color palette!  I saw baja breeze, pool party and sahara sand, so I pulled those out to create my card.

 I stamped images from Verve's Poppy Birthday on white card stock and colored them with BG10, BG72, and a color with a little more turquoise that I can't remember.  I stacked two flowers on top of each other with a dimensional in between.  The buttons are from my PTI box of Aqua Mist buttons.  They are threaded with thin twine.  The card base is baja breeze followed by a layer of Sahara Sand.  The dp is from MME, I think-it was in my stash!  The large ticket is stamped in black on Sahara sand and then I sponged with Soft suede to make it all vintagy.  I tried layering, but something was missing.  When I placed the doily, I liked it so much better!  I used baja breeze seam binding for my bow.  Below is an angled view so you can see the 3D layered flowers.

Oh, and the ticket in XL-do you love it as much as I do!  It's from Memory Box and has a matching die!!  Love that so, so much!  I got mine at Ellen Hutson.

And, one more picture!!  Please join us at JUGS this week and show off your creativity!  We have a guest designer position we are working on.  Details are on the blog, too!

Thanks all for coming by and have a great day!
Hugs, Cheryl

This card is just gorgeous. The soft blues and the way you popped up the flowers with the buttons is really pretty!
