My Last Design Team Friday with JustWordz Stamps

This will be my last project for the JustWordz design team. The current term ends today and Kim is in the process of selecting and notifying her new team members. They will soon take the reins and I have no doubt at all that they will provide every bit as much creative inspiration as the current team has. I hope they have as much fun as I have had these past 4 months. This is a wonderful and extremely talented group of women and I'll truly miss working with them and with Kim. This is both a sad and exciting moment for me. I am sad that this term has ended so soon and I am saying goodbye to some really great artists and friends but I am also excited for the new path I have chosen. More on that later but now it's time to talk about my project.

This week, Kim asked us to create a project for a specific family member. My assignment was to make something appropriate for a sister. Well, my youngest sister's birthday is coming up next month so that worked out pretty perfectly, didn't it? I've had this lovely digi stamp in my library that I have been wanting to color so I decided it would be a good one to use for this purpose. I don't recall who the artist was that created it so if any of you know, please tell me so I can give him/her the credit.  In my opinion, this design just "begged" to be pieced.  It's a ceramic or earthenware pitcher holding a bouquet of roses.  Simple but elegant.  I love the yellow and blue color combination seen in French Country decor so I colored the pitcher in those colors.  I also colored the two uppermost blossoms 3 times so I could cut and layer them to make them look 3-dimensional.  I stamped my sentiment, for which I used the Everyday Sentiments stamp set, onto a distressed tag and tied a small piece of hemp cord through the hole and popped it up on the card. I hope my sister likes it and I hope you do too.
