Just Us Girls #476 ~ Kindness


Hi there! I'm sharing my final card as guest designer with the Just Us Girls challenge today. I would like to thank Vicki for her invitation and the entire design team for their warm welcome. I've had a lot of fun guesting with you girls this month!

Check out this week's inspiration photo!


I knew immediately I wanted to make a shaker to capture the sparkle. Then I noticed the rounded areas and points on the gemstone. Those brought flowers and leaves to mind. So this is what I came up with. 


I created my shaker opening with an older Spellbinders label die then filled it with PPP sequins, confetti and seed beads. My die cut and water-colored blooms are from the PPP Wild Rose stamp set. I chose to stamp the leaves on vellum for a light airy look. 

Thanks for stopping by today, I love it when you do. Be sure to check out all of the inspiration from the JUGS team, then add your card to the gallery for a chance to be Chic of the Week!
