Just Us Girls Challenge #23

It's about that time for the Saturday JUGS challenge :]  This week is our sketch challenge and is being hosted by sweet, Dana ♥  Check out this sketch she whipped up!  Isn't it awesome?
To top off this fantastic sketch, Dana arranged to have Dawn Woleslagle from Wplus9 Design Studios sponsor us this week!  Let me tell you, I normally don't stray far when it comes to stamps...I simply have my favorites, BUT I'm already in LOVE with her stuff!  I might be purchasing the bird set sooner than later.  It was a toss up between that one and the cute, Funky Foliage I did get :] Here's my take on the sketch using the Funky Foliage set.

...and here's the inside.


Can you tell I was totally inspired by the recent Paper Crafts magazine?  I LOVE how Debbie Olson stitched just the tops of her hills, and Becky Oehlers created her hills using pieces of patterned paper.  So I incorporated those concepts here.  I used all MTME digi paper, Couture Cardstock, and PTI.

Isn't the sentiment CUTE?!  OMG...such a versatile set...you MUST check it out!!  On my card I hand stitched my hills and the perimeter of the card.  I put the tree tops on dimensionals and added random buttons from my stash down the side.  I am head over heels for this color palette!!  I just love it :]

So...why not give the sketch a go and play along?!  Be sure to link your project at JUGS using InLinkz and use keyword JUGS23 in any online galleries.  I'm about to fall asleep TYPING, so I'm going to close for now and will update links, etc. first thing in the morning :]

Don't forget to check out the rest of our amazing team.  Their links are in my left sidebar...except for our Guest Designer, Stephanie Kraft ♥  Please leave her some love also!

Have a wonderful weekend.
