Just Us Girls #172

JUGS172

This week's challenge is a colour challenge brought to us by Vicki.  She has selected the wonderful combination of white, grey and lime green.   I paired it with an old Sweet Stop sketch.

Since there was a lack of lime green in my paper stash, I chose this wonderful flowered paper by Jilly Bean.   My blogging buddy Dawn recently posted a card using Verve's Dream big set, and since it is one of my favorite sets, I decided it was time to pull it out again myself.  A darker shade of grey for the leaves and a pop of black and some bling did the trick :)

For some inspiration to get you going, just hop on over to the Just Us Girls blog, and check out what the Design Team has created.  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card/project to the challenge post on the JUGS blog for the chance to be selected as Chick of the Week.

Off to the soccer field we go today early Saturday morning - hoping the field is open  (so far no call of closed fields) as the temps have still been cool.  Fingers crossed for an open field and a win!  Then over to my mom's for an early birthday dinner celebration with the family.  Sunday afternoon my daughter has a piano recital and then I think I am going to go curl up in a chair with a blanket and a book Sunday evening just to relax a bit after a busy weekend (that is if my kids let me LOL).   


Have a great weekend!  Back on Monday with my Mojo Monday card.

Geez, another challenge I would love to do...I like these colors (even though they're aren't part on my usual pallet.) You really made an inspiring card. Just love the big sentiment with those bold colors!
