Since I am a big fan of Lauren Meader, when I saw she was sponsoring the JUGS challenge for this month, I had to give it a try. The challenge #17 was to create something 3D using a template (preferably Lauren's). I created a template from some packaging (Godiva chocolate, yum!)from a Christmas gift basket. I used my scor-pal to score the lines and my craft knife to cut out the dimond shapes.
I used sweet blush cardstock from Papertrey ink, pink geranium ink from Martha Stewart, ribbon from an unknown source, and my new stardust gel pen (love that!!). The heart/circle stamp is from Inkadinkado and the scallop punch is SU! I thought this would make a perfect Valentine's Day package for my 3-year-old, so I taped off the heart in the stamp and stamped a "J" in the center instead. It will be the perfect size for a pack of Extra gum (one of her favorites).

Wow! Weren't you courageous to tackle your own template! This is so pretty and I'm sure your daughter will love it! The sparkle is so pretty, too! Sparkle is my signature style. It's on 99% of my cards! Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls!
