Just us Girls Challenge #152

 

This week's Just Us Girls sketch challenge is brought to us by Maria.  I took some creative liberty with the sketch (sorry Maria) and added a tag - a skewed tag at that lol - as my main panel and the sentiment migrated on to the tag.  

This week's Colour Q challenge was a fabulous one so I used it with the sketch as I just loved the mix of colours :)  A  definite use again combo.

Pulled out some of my favorites for this card:  flowers, scalloped borders, Verve's Elegant Leaf die, tags, butterflies, half pearls, and my French Script background stamp.  Happy sigh... :)

The rest of the Design Team have some great samples to get your inspiration going.  Just pop over to the JUGS blog for a peek at their wonderful creations.

We'd love to have you play along with us this week.  Simply create a card using this week's sketch and link it to the JUGS blog and you may be selected as Chick of the Week :)

Thanks for popping by and have a fabulous week!  We are getting ready for school to start next week and enjoying the long weekend as a family before our schedules ramp up once again.  Hope you have a great one too :)

This is a beautiful color combo and I love how you used the colors. The scripted background stamping and tiny butterflies are perfect details, Marisa! Lovely card!

Can't wait to see what you create with your NEW VERVE GOODIES!

I love the added skewed tag! And, I think that Colour Q is the best color challenge in blogland. Though I don't like using 4, the combos are amazing!

Maureen said...

Simply gorgeous! That burst of blue colored flowers is so eye-catching! And of course I love the skewed tag...

Christina said...

Beautiful pops of turquoise, and I am still smitten by that leaf die but can't bring myself to put it in my cart just yet. :) Love the script background on kraft, too.

Darlene Gabriel said...

Wow great work with these 2 challenges. I love how the crimped flowers pop off the card in this colour. Nice use the tag.

Looks as if I've gotten behind on commenting.
That blue flower is awesome and just pops out the minute you open up this card. Wow!
You did a skewed panel..without having that as the challenge? You've gotten very brave, Marisa. :-)
