Girls Just Want To Have Sun

Our Just Us Girls Color Week Challenge #673 is Terracotta and Green. I am CASEing Hannelie Bester's fabulous card from not long ago that I just love (here.) The team came up with a great variety of ideas for you this week and we hope you will join us! My plan was for my CAS card to look like a terracotta tile courtyard with plants here and there.

Products I used:

Spellbinders: Shopping Run dies

My Favorite Things: Perfect Pool Water stencil

Poppystamps: Whittle Sealife Sentiments

Concord and 9th: Mini ink pads

Stampin' Up!: Brown marker

Ink blending brushes

This is the first time I am using these plant dies and it was fairly easy. I ink blended the leaves and terracotta pot, then assembled them into one unit. I stenciled the "tiles" on the left bottom corner then tried some arrangements of the plant and the sentiment until I was happy with it. I couldn't resist the pun when I was looking for a sentiment. Hope it made you smile.

Looking forward to seeing your ideas in our gallery this week!

The color of your leaves is wonderful, Carol, and I love that one dropped to the 'tiled' floor.

Love your plant nestled in its pretty terracotta pot. I was 'this close' to using the same set; so many possibilities with the shopping cart collection that I have yet to explore.

I love that plant with the beautiful shading and the texture on the terracotta pot is fabulous! Perfect stenciling, too on the flooring.

Love your CAS card Carol - the stencilled corner is so effective! I can;'t resist a good pun so your sentiment definitely made me chuckle! Thanks for the warm welcome to JUGS this week!

You nailed it with this card! I love it! The placement of the stencil off the corner is so cool! And I love the one leaf that fell off the cute! Great sentiment too.
