JUGS 43


The JUGS challenge for this week was to use a template. I created my own by using recycled packaging from a Christmas gift basket. If you have read my earlier entries, you will know that I have done this several times--all from the same gift basket. You might also recognize the card in the last two pictures. I made this card for a challenge a couple months ago and am going to use it for a birthday card for a friend. I made this little package to match, it will be just perfect for a pair of earrings for her. The card is a standard 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch card so you can see the size of the package in the last two pictures. The focal image is from PTI's Damask Designs as is the "Celebrate" (love that set!), the flourish underneath and the flowers on the background paper are from SU!
