Just Hangin' With the JUGs Gals....

Eeeekkk!!   I cannot tell you how excited I am to be the JUGs Featured Designer for the month of June!!  When the lovely and talented Pam emailed me with the offer I didn't hesitate for one minute!  You see... JUGs was one of the very first challenge I ever entered and from the get go the JUGs gals were just so sweet and made entering their challenges so much fun!   I can't say enough good things about these wonderful ladies.  But I must move on to my card!  This week the challenge over at JUGs is a sketch challenge and the amazingly talented Kathryn, who is the challenge hostess this week,  has provided us with this fantastic sketch.  



For my card I used the Waltzingmouse set Large Doily, along with a sentiment from the PTI set Think Big Favorites #1.  My color inspiration came from this week's Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World.  I just loved the pale blues combined with the white and then that beautiful pop of pinky-purple.  I stamped the largest doily image on white cardstock using SU!'s Marine Mist.  Then a smaller image was stamped in the center using SU!'s Soft Sky.  A 3rd large doily was stamped on a piece of white cardstock using Marina Mist and die cut using the largest die from the Spellbinders Large Scalloped Circle dies.  The piece was adhered over the top of the stamped images and then trimmed as shown.  A smaller image was stamped using Soft Sky, die cut and adhered to the center.  The sentiment was stamped using Hero Arts Hero Hues Iris ink. 

Thanks for taking a peek..... and don't forget to check out all the loveliness from JUGs team of Pam, Kristen, Elise, Maria, Kathryn, Lisa, Dana and Andrea.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! night of navy; Ink:  SU! Marina Mist, Soft Sky; Hero Hues Iris; Stamps:  PTI Think Big Favorites #1; WMS Large Doily; Spellbinders Large Scallop dies

Back to your clean and simple Rosie, but even though it has this effect , it is not simple! it is delightful and your sentiment is placed lower than most would do, leaving your negative space that you love so well.
