JUGS 146 Colour Challenge

 

 
This week's JUGS colour challenge is hosted by Andrea and she came up with a great colours combination.  I immediately pulled out MME's Stella and Rose paper as it has a great match for this combination and went to work.

Had a carving to use my "U" die again and that lead to four other Verve dies coming out to play.  I needed a little something to balance off the "U" so added a "for" tag - think the message is loud and clear on this card LOL!

Took me some getting used to all the colour on this card as I am usually more of a white space girl, but I'm liking it more and more and it was nice to work outside my normal box :)

I'd love to see your take on this week's colour challenge.  Simply create a new card and then add it to the Mr.Linky on the JUGS blog.  If you are using a public gallery, use keyword JUGS146.  Who knows, you could be selected as Chick of the Week :)

The Design Team and our July Guest Designer Esther have lots of inspiration for you so head on over to the JUGS blog and check them out.

Have a fabulous weekend and I look forward to seeing your creations.

These colors remind me of fall somehow, leading me to think of - aaah - cooler temps. :) So pretty, and great way to use this color palette.
