It's time for a new challenge at Just Us Girls. It's Word Week this week, the word is LOVE and Elizabeth is our host.

For my card, I used Hero Arts Love & Florals die set that I bought around Valentines Day last year, and never broke it out. Since Elizabeth's chosen word was love, I die cut a white rectangle and backed it with Echo Park patterned paper. I die cut the flowers and colored them with Distress Oxide inks. I popped up the white panel with Fun Foam onto an embossed panel, adhered that to a white card base, and my card was complete.

This month we are joined by Denise Morgans of The Crafty Den as Guest Designer. Please head on over to the Just Us Girls Challenge Blog to see what Denise and the rest of the Design Team have made to spark your creativity. Come play with us!

I'm definitely feelin' the LOVE on your darling card, Stephanie! What a brilliant way to use some very pretty paper! [use the ef with brown and you've got yourself a KitKat, right?]

Stephanie... check your link on your card on JUGS site. I wasn't able to click through. Just stopping by to say I love how you and Sue used strips! You should think about submitting to the Male Room as well.

Fabulous card, Stephanie! The big block nature of the love die cut panel works so perfectly with the striped patterned paper and I just adore the color palette!
