JUGS #150


This week's colour challenge is being hosted by Elise, and she has a wonderful mix of colours to play with :)   I combined it with an old Mojo Monday sketch and used some of My Minds Eye, Blink of an Eye paper for the challenge.

I absolutely love this sentiment from Verve's Kind Words set.  Actually, I love the entire set and find myself using it often as it has many wonderful sentiments and this flower silhouette as well.  Since my card seemed a bit "blah" I distressed the edges and added a crimped butterfly.  My ribbon isn't exactly Pumpkin Pie, but it works.

The rest of the Design Team along with our August Guest Designer Jen, have created some wonderful inspiration for you to peruse. Just head on over to the JUGS blog and check them out.  Then simply make a new card with this week's colour combo and link it up on the JUGS challenge post to be considered for the Chick of the Week!  Easy as that :)

Thanks for all of YOUR kind words to me on my blog, and as the sentiment says, they do echo and encourage me often ((hugs))!

Love the torn edges on your paper! Channeling our friend A, perhaps? ;) It's a beautiful effect!
