Just Us Girls #321 PHOTO Challenge

Challenge 321 is a photo challenge and Vicki has picked a great holiday photo-full or sparkle and color!  I knew right away that I wanted to use this Hero Arts die that came with some word stamps to fit across the middle of the ornament.  Please check the JUGS BLOG for tons of pink inspiration!



 The rest I had to figure out as I went along! It was a fun process though! I cut the ornament die from white cardstock and used a round ink blending tool to add color in Picked Raspberry (Distress Ink), Purely Pomegranate (SU) and Scarlet Jewel ( PTI) to get an ombre look to the pinks. My card base is Grout Grey (MFT), then a layer of Raspberry Fizz (PTI) with the edge sponged in Purely Pomegranate, then a layer of silver glittter paper (SU, I think)
 I die cut 3 of the Impression Obsession pine bought (I love it and have used it often!!). I applied Evergreen Bough distress ink.  Then I added some brown with a copic marker and then some BG99 to the needles nearest the branch for more depth. I thought about adding snow, but decided the card didn't need it .
Behind the ornament die is a Spellbinders' circle die cut from a shiny silver heavy card stock.  That made the card a bit difficult to photograph!  the ornament is on dimensionals and is tied to the bough with some silver thread,
Please visit the blog (linked above) for inspiration and if you add your card with Mr. Linky by Thursday Dec. 3 at 9 pm ET you may have a chance to be our Gurest Designer for January!
Thanks for coming by!  Cheryl

Those conifer branches are amazing... want to say the best I've seen! I agree: you didn't even need the snow, but now I'm curious... you might try it someday!

I forgot about this die! I have it too (I think we purchased it at the show)! I was looking for an ornament die/stamp for this challenge and totally forgot this is an ornament! Your card is so pretty! Love the colors and the pines! Great colors on the pines...they look so real!
