Just Us Girls #363 - Word Week


Well this is a fabulous word for Sharon's last challenge.  [Yes, we are all so sad she is leaving us.]  With the time of year, the cards [everyone creates] will be beautiful I have no doubt.

I used MFT Wild Greenery die-namics for my leaves, and a sentiment from MFT Simply Fabulous Sayings.  [I just love the font in this set.]

To make my leaves shimmery, I sponged a card stock panel with distress inks, brushed on Perfect Pearls, and then cut out the leaves with the dies.  It is so pretty in real life.  I am also entering this into The Male Room Challenge #45 - Leaves or trees, and also Dies R Us; Leaves or Trees also, but you must use die cuts.
Okay, your turn!  We hope you join in at JUGS #363 -- the gallery should be outstanding with the bright Fall colors.


Thanks for stopping by~

This is a stunning design! I love how you have sponged the card stock and added the sparkle of perfect pearls before you cut out those gorgeous leaves. It has been a pleasure being on the DT with you. I will miss it, I know.

Awesome card, love how you have made the leaves the focal with the bright color, and the rest of the card is white. Very striking...well done!

Great composition of brightly coloured leaves. Fabulous.

I love the contrast between the orange leaves and green twine, Vicki. I wouldn't have thought to use these leaves in Fall colors but they look fantastic.

Lisa said...

Love that cluster of prettiness! This is marvelous Vicki!

Stunningly CAS and so bold and bright. Love these die cut leaves. Great contrast with the thread. Thanks so much for playing along with The Male Room this week! Deborah, DT.

Vicki, I love this cluster of leaves and the fact that you added Perfect Pearls must make them even more beautiful in real life. The fact that you kept your background so simple really allows those leaves to pop from the page. Gorgeous. Thank you so much for having me along as GD this month
