JUGS Challenge Wild Card Week #295

I realized that I had not posted since May 24th!!!! What is up with that?  I don't have a temperature, or feel unwell. But I forced myself to make a card today, and now..... I feel better!  Ahhh!

Just us Girls has a Challenge this week that is a Wild Card Week.  My creative and talented friend Sharyn Polesel, has chosen Paper Piecing, because she loves to do that.  I tell her all of the time that I want to be just like her when I grow up.  So here goes. 

                                                                   This is my card

Here are the ingredients:
GKD cardstock in Dusty Sage and Tomato Soup and Tomato Soup ink
Doily from my stash sponged with Distress ink, Antique Linen ( looks like it has been in the dirt)
Wheel Barrel and Arrow die cut from a friend, ( Kathy Krug)

Stamp set, WPlus9 Hope Seed Co.
Design paper from my stash ( honestly, don't know where they are from) Judy Dots & sequins.
Only the poppies are paper pieced. 

Thanks for stopping by to take a look, your comments always make me happy! 


  1. I love your paper pieced pretty! Your background paper has such wonderful colors in it and I love the antique linen edges.....beautiful card. Thanks for joining us at Just Us Girls!
