Just Us Girls #277 Photo week!

   Here's Chris' great (and timely!) photo!  What a beauty!  There's loads of DT inspiration on our Blog-Just Us Girls!                                  
And, here's my card!  I'm very late posting and I'm not sure I hit the inspiration on the mark, but thanks for coming by to have a look! I'm also entering this in IC477 at Splitcoast Stampers!
I've used a poppy red card base stamped in burgundy with a background stamp from Impression Obsession-it's swirly.  The Kraft panel was die cut with Simon Says Stamp die that has these three rounded square windows.  Isn't it great!!??  After cutting it and rounding the corners I stamped it in kraft ink with the linen background stamp (ret. SU, I think!)  As you can see I sponged the edges -vintage photo distress ink for this.
I stamped the love sentiment (manufacturer unknown) in Versamark and embossed it in white eb.  The layered hearts are cut with my Verve set of 4 hearts from Coastal Cabana.  They are also stamped with the linen background stamp and then the edges are sponged with CC  Those gems on the hearts are red and a line of Stardust Stickles is run down the opposite side of the heart.  The whole kraft panel is raised on dimensional tape (so it doesn't sag0I hate that!) and the hearts are inserted in the windows.  They are rasied too, of course!

So, again, thanks for stopping by!  Please consider joining us in Chris' JUGS challenge this week!  You have until Thursday night, Jan. 29 at 9 ET.  Chics of the week in January have a chance to be our guest designer in March!
