JUGS210, DD#74

Hi Everyone!  Really quick post today!  It's a miracle I'm even on here!  I was busy, busy, busy in my scrap room, when my two year old decided that a nap was not on her list of things to do today... so... yeah.... try making a card with a technique you've never done, and she needs to know if Dora's head goes this way or that on the puzzle and if she can twirl your chair for you so you can have fun too... or if Mommy is gong to do the noisy thing yet... the noisy thing is my heat embossing gun!  So, technically if I wanted her out of my office... all I have to do is lay that thing on my table!  But, yeah, that's not so nice really, poor thing!  

So... very quickly now, so I can finish up!  Today's card is for the JUGS challenge of Die Inlay!  Never done this before, definitely will do it again... I'm thinking of starting with a base made of the starburst/sunburst technique I did a couple weeks ago and using the same flower I used in today's cards.  Be sure to check out the link to Jennifer McGuire's video... I see some more videos on her channel I'll have to check out when I have some time!  I am also linking up with the Dynamic Duos colour challenge.  Such a pretty colour combo isn't it?

Here are my cards... I couldn't decide which one to use... so there are a few here for your viewing pleasure!  Enjoy!

I can't decide which is my favourite... the one with more white space, or the other.  I think the one with more white space has a little more impact, but the other is so pretty with the strips of DSP.  What do you think?

So, there you have it.  I used strips of DSP from the Tea For Two DSP, Floral Frames Framelits (say that five times fast!), Very Vanilla CS as my card base, and a beautiful sentiment from the (retired) Elementary Elegance SAB set.  On one card I stamped it in Calypso Coral, and on the other I heat embossed in white on a strip of Calypso Coral CS.  I love the way they turned out and will definitely be doing this again!  Stay tuned!
