A new prompt is up at the Just Us Girls Challenge blog where today marks my final day as Guest Designer for January. Any guesses?
The design team is looking for Clean and Simple Birthday cards.
Cards with lots of white space are one of my favorites so this was a fun one. I tend to forget about my stash of PaperTrey Ink stamps so I did a deep dive and found a set of sentiments which function as a unique alternative to a belated birthday greeting. I knew I wanted a circular focal design so then it was just a matter of finding the right sumthin' sumthin' to complete the design. Black cat it is! I hadn't planned to create the off center white on black mat but it just seemed to work better in the end, especially with the off center design of the circle as a whole. Sometimes you just gotta roll with it. :-)

I hope you'll join in on the fun. I'd love to see your takes on the Clean & Simple Birthday in the JUGS gallery. Thanks so much to the entire JUGS team for inviting me to play along with them this month!
As always, thanks so much for spending a bit of your day with me!
I just love this cat image - goes awesome with the teal I think ;)ReplyDelete
Another great card...sad this is your last guest week. You are so talented!!!ReplyDelete
I love how the offset circle balances out the black cat, Jules. The sentiment is a better way to admit a missed birthday. It's been great having you as our guest this month.ReplyDelete
Fabulous Jules! So glad you spent the month with us! I love the sentiment... sometimes I send out "sorry I missed your birthday cards" just as a conversation starter with people I haven't talked to in awhile. Love your card!ReplyDelete
I love this design! That offset layered circle and cute back cat are perfect thanks for joining us this month at JUGs!ReplyDelete
You have been such a wonderful guest and your final card is CAS purfection. Linds would love this card!ReplyDelete
I like the way you role! This is a perfect, (or should I say purrfect!) CAS card. Love the pop of teal. Loved having you as our guest this month Jules, you did a marvelous job! Hope to see you in our galleries!ReplyDelete
Oh, very clever. The offset circle adds just enough interest. Sweet card xxxReplyDelete
Oh Jules this is as everyone has said - purrfection. Love the off set circle, touch of teal and that black cat - oh my this just rocks. What a way to end your Guest spot with us. So loved your creative talents you shared with us at JUGS.ReplyDelete
