Joan Weekly Challenge JustRite Blog Hop


This is a gift box and matching birthday card I designed for this blog hop.  One of my favorite new JustRite stamp sets was used for the sentiments.  The set used is called "You Inspire Me".  It includes five gorgeous frames and five  sentiments. 

This view allows you to see the two different JustRite frames and sentiments.  Punched flowers were created to frame the beautiful sentiments. This birthday card and box, with a gift inside, have been sent to a very dear friend.  Her favorite color is purple!

Are you ready for a chance to win some fabulous prizes? Joan's Gardens 8th Weekly Thursday Challenge is proud to feature JustRite stamps and dies. Your challenge this week is to create a card using these products. You can get complete information about the challenge on Joan's Gardens blog.
