Just Us Girls #180 - Colour Challenge

JUGS180 photo JUGS180picA.jpg  

This week's colour challenge is brought to us by Lisa and she has selected green, orange and white in celebration of St. Patrick's Day.

I decided to make a tag to change things up a bit and after quite a few shamrocks I opted for a flower instead.  Polka dotted garden green and bright orange were my colours of choice and where there are flowers, there must be a butterfly {grin}.

The rest of the  JUGS team has some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so 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 Chic of the Week.  

Have a fabulous weekend, and I'll be back on Monday with my Mojo Monday card!
