Just Us Girls Challenge #421 - Photo Week!

Hi and welcome to the last challenge of 2017. The Team will be taking the month of December off to spend with our families.  The Chic of the Week will be announced on the normal Friday [December 1] but after that... we are off. [Don't forget to come back in January 2018, and start the new year with Just Us Girls!]

Here's a bigger picture of Vicki's inspiration photo so you can see the detail better:

I hope you will stop by the Just Us Girls blog to see Trina, our guest designer's creation along with all of the DT's creations HERE.

And please stop by Judy Woodland's blog and leave her some love!  The JUGS team is so sad to see her go as this is her last post for JUGS.  We will all miss her amazing creations and the inspiration that she shared each week with us at JUGS!  Be sure to follow her by email so you won't miss any of her future work.  I know we will stay in touch, but I'm still so sad to see her leave!  HUGS Judy!!!

For my card I used the Simon Says "Ring Frame Die" and cut several out of different papers and Gina K Designs black card stock.  The red plaid is Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid Christmas pad, and all the other papers are from two Gina K Designs paper packs:  Winter Cheer and Cold Snap

After assembling the ring with various inserts and adhering it to a white panel, I die cut that panel with the MFT stitched rectangle die and then adhered it to a turquoise plaid panel (Gina K) toward the bottom right.  I added two thin black strips for definition and the then added that whole panel to a Gina K white heavy card base.  The sentiment is from Gina K's Winter Cheer set.  Lastly I added Nuvo Glitter drops all around for some sparkle.

Here are a few more close up views:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
