Just Us Girls - July Guest Designer - Photo Week

This is my last post as the July Guest Designer for Just Us Girls
What a wonderful time I have had creating with the Design Team this month! 
Thank you so much ladies for inviting me to play with you!

This week is Photo Week and here is the challenge!
What beautiful shades of orange with the soft green leaves, bling floral centers and text background!  So much to inspire us!
I was inspired by the flowers, the colors and the text background in the photo!  
Pretty much all of it, right?!
I got out the May Corner Adorner stamps and die from PTI.  I stamped the flowers in Summer Sunrise - then die cut two single flowers, stamped them in Orange Zest and layered them over the first stampings with foam dots. 
I die cut the card base using PTI Noted: Pinked A2 die.  I die cut the panel using one of the dies in the Noted: Scalloped A2 set.  I stamped Wendy Vecchi/Stampers Anonymous Script Background over the panel and then sponged the edges with Ranger Distress Tea Dye ink.  I layered the little bouquet over the panel with foam dots as well as the stamped sentiment strip.  Then I added orange rhinestones to the flower centers.

So please join us over at Just Us Girls showing us your creation inspired by this lovely photo!  You have until 9 pm EST August 2nd to link up your card.

Stamps:  Script Background - Wendy Vecchi/Stampers Anonymous, Corner Adorner: May - PTI

I just love those 'pinked' edges to the card and the pop of colour from those gorgeous flowers! Thank you for reminding me about that script stamp, I must dig mine out, it is such a useful stamp. I love this beautiful card Julia! Hugs, Anne xx

Perfect interpretation of the photo, Julia, right down to the rhinestone centers in the flowers. I love the inking around the script panel - something I used to do a lot.
