Just Us Girls 185 - Colour Challenge

Mother's Day photo JUGS185picB.jpg

First and foremost, I want to wish our fearless JUGS leader, Lisa, a very, very, Happy Birthday!!!   Thanks for all you do for JUGS, Lisa!  We love you lots :)

This week's Just Us Girls challenge is hosted by yours truly.  I have chosen to give one last tribute to some retiring colours - after all it is spring and these colours are perfect for spring flowers!

Kept things on the quick and easy side as life is crazy hectic right now!   Pulled out my favorite PTI flower die and paired it with Verve leaves and sentiment.  I have visions of similar colours in my garden over the next few months and that makes me happy :)  Yes, I love real flowers and stamped ones.

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 everyone!

That is ine of my all-time favorite color combos! Reminds me of pastel misty mints, the ones with the white nonpareils on the bottoms :). Those brushed flower images are gorgeous! I hear ya on the crazy hectic life ;)
