Just Us Girls 131 and CR84FN 51

I haven't created much lately.  You know, going through a slump.  Also I've been busy at work, working a couple extra shifts.  It tires this girl out. In the meantime, I've been having a blast looking at some of the challenges.

I found a new challenge this week, CR84FN.
My color inspiration
Their color challenge is peach, light pink and light blue.  I am so not a peach person.  But I did so happen to have some card stock in the color that I had left over from when I was with Close to My Heart about 15 years ago. 

Just Us Girls (JUGS) #131 is a very fun challenge blog.  I like it because every week there is a new type of challenge.  And they have been very kind in leaving comments.  This week it's a sketch challenge.

Sketch Inspiration
I would like to say that I haven't purchased anything, but that's not true.  I went to a resale shop and they had half a spool of purple ribbon for 49 cents.  I'm sorry....I couldn't pass that up.  I did get some new items this week as well, but I didn't purchase them.  I won them from A La Card Monkey challenge.  I used the pearls from the prize on this card.  I've never used pearls before.  And I must say, I like them very much.  I used a circle punch and Spellbinders die and the edging on the blue is from a new punch from my prize package.  I have to say, I've never purchased a edge punch before.  Personally, I like the dies better, but it works for now.  The gift, flower and for you stamps are by Stamps of Life.

  3. Traci, it's fun to try and deplete your stash - even if you throw in something new along the way! LOVE how you randomly placed the pearls on your card and the blue edge and scallop background! THX for playing with us at CR84FN!
