Just Us Girls Challenge

As I was checking in on everyone's blog I saw that my blog friend Dana is on the Design Team for "Just Us Girls". I loved the colors she used, and I can use all the Christmas card motivation so I got to work!

Stamps: Merry and Bright - PS I so need to buy some Christmas stamps!
Paper: Real Red, Aqua Mist, Vintage Cream
Pattern Paper: Bitty Boxes Aqua Mist
Ribbon: Bottom - May Arts
Ink: Vintage Cream


Also, a few of you asked for a tutorial on how I make my flowers! I'm going to try to get that done this week! It's really not hard at all!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stunning - at first glance it's a really simple layout but there is so much here - love the bit of lace and the partial cut of the die. Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls. Hope you'll return on Saturday for a brand new challenge.
