Just Us Girls

Following a great tutorial for making 3D flowers on the Just Us Girls Challenge I thought I'd have a go and this is the result.
I didn't use the same Spellbinders dies as in the video, but I think that these work just as well. I used the scalloped circles and didn't brayer colour onto the tissue paper, but just edged the aqua blue tissue with a little Brilliance ink in Pearlescent Sky Blue.
The flourishes are from Quickutz and the sentiment is Anitas.
I've just realised that I'm a bit late with this, but I'll post it anyway.
I tore a ligament in my knee whilst out shopping yesterday in Bath and have joined the ranks of the walking wounded. I may have to have some surgery later, but the doctor wants to see if it will settle down a little first. My husband came home from the Pharmacy with a carrier bag full of our various medications. What it is to be getting old! No more exercise classes for me for a while. The doctor said that my knee was quite arthritic... Yuk! Hey Ho... more time for card-making!


  1. beautiful card, I love the layout and the gorgeous flower.

    Poor you with your knee, sounds very painful. You seem to be taking it in very good spirits, not sure that I would


  2. oo poor you hobbling about with a poorly knee - I knew all that keep fit was bad! I love that beautiful tissue flower and will have to check out how they are made as I have all the things you used except the blue tissue paper - more shopping then!
    hugs, annie x
