Just Us Girls #269 ANYTHING GOES!!

Hello!  Just Us Girls has its weekly challenge up on the blog, and it comes to us courtesy of Vicki!  She has chosen ANYTHING GOES!  Wow, I love that challenge! This is a card we made in the group of lovely ladies that I stamp with.  They seemed to like it so I hope you do too!

 I used Poppy red for my card base.  It is stamped in burgundy with Hero Arts woodgrain stamp and the edges are also sponged in the dark red.  The snowglobe die is from My Favorite Things. I've been using it a lot recently!  I cut the circle with the set from white cardstock. Then I stamped on the trees from the SU set, White Christmas.  The trees are colored with brown copics and the Santa and sleigh from another SU set (Holiday Home) is stamped in black.  Then I went to work with my stencil brush and blue inks.  First, I used Pool Party, then Coastal Cabana, then Not Quite Navy to get the deepest blue for a night sky.
The base of the snow globe is cut from Kraft, dry embossed with the SU woodgrain folder and sponged with soft Suede.  The little snowman is from a retired SU set (Winter Play) and fussy cut.  Then I added snow and glitter to the tree.  The snow 'dots' were added with my Versamark pen and embossed in silver embossing powder.  I added the star at the top with white pen and then went over it with a Wink of Stella pen.  The globe was taped together and then raised up on dimensionals and mounted to the card front.

I really hope you'll check out all the amazing inspiration pieces at the Just Us Girls blog and then create something to share with us for our Anything Goes challenge!
Take care,
Cheryl
