Chic of the Week #11

Wow, ladies!  You definitely gave us some great examples using the Chalkboard technique this week!!  I LOVED ALL of your projects...TRULY!!  It's soooo hard selecting a favorite when I want to choose all of them!  I eventually narrowed it down to four, which seems appropriate considering we had fewer players this week.

Out of the four, the card that REALLY caught my eye belongs to Ms. Andrea Matthews:


The subtle, soft brown leaves in the background lend a certain elegance to her overall design.  I love her vintage flower and the large, scalloped, double border accented beautifully with buttons!  I just think this is sooo pretty!  HUGE congrats, Andrea, on being selected as our Chic of the Week #11!!  I'll email your badge shortly :O)

The following ladies' projects also caught my eye!
  • fancypants ~ She used our alternative to chalks - powdered makeup, and it turned out BEAUTIFULLY!  No halo effect here!  I think I'll try eyeshadow next time ;]

  • Laurel Seabrook ~ She made the apples on her card come to life with the technique, and her gorgeous stitching is just the perfect, finishing touch :]

  • Chupa ~ She made two cards using the technique, but her "Wish" card really stuck with me.  She applied several different colors of chalk to give her flowers and leaves amazing dimension!!
Thanks for participating in Just Us Girls' 11th challenge!  We are so grateful to have such loyal followers ;]  If you played along and would still like to receive a copy of my digital stamp set, please email JUGS and we'll send it your way ;]

I wish you all an amazing holiday season filled with love ♥  Hope you have time to play along this week with an absolutely STUNNING color challenge hosted by Tracey!  Check back tomorrow for all the deets!
