A Very Special JUGS Challenge

How amazing is it that the Just Us Girls Challenge blog and DT has been bringing us fun filled challenges, and beautiful inspiration for a year! In honor of that celebration, and to bring about better Breast Cancer awareness, The team is sponsoring a very special sketch challenge this week. If you would like to see all the details, hop on over to the JUGS Blog and check things out. There is an awesome prize, too! Here is the card I have created, after flipping the sketch.

I think it has a bit of an Asian flair. I used Pure Luxury card stocks, and designer paper from Memory Box. I found my Making Memories magnetic stamp set with words in different scripts and stamped them in Memento Rich Cocoa. My trim is a braided/pleated, white, satin trim that was a gift, and I use the small piece I own very sparingly. LOL! My accents are Prima flowers, an MS butterfly, and white pearls.

As October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I am very happy to do my part by leaving links to some very special agency's, that promote breast health.

This is one stunning card! That braided trim is so elegant and rich looking, and I'd use it very sparingly too! Have a great week!

Mary Anne,
This is sooooo very pretty, that ribbon should be in hiding because it is just to beautiful to be used up LOL. Love the way you used your paper and just added the words it looks like art!

I think your use of the satin ribbon is totally warranted and beautiful on your lovely card this week! Your colors are spectacular and truly help to reinforce the fact that we're promoting breast cancer awareness! I also like how you flipped the sketch...nice work ;]

Thank you so much for playing along and helping to spread the word!
