Just Us Girls #198

JUGS 198 photo JUGS198picA.jpg

This week's challenge is a colour challenge hosted by Tangii and she has found this fabulous image to use as our inspiration.

I combined it with a Retro Sketch from a few weeks back and some yummy Happy Day MME paper which had the perfect colours.

Pulled out this fabulous sentiment from Words of Wisdom as it seemed fitting to use with the butterfly - a similar metamorphosis type of scenario if you like.  I used the debossed side of the Swiss Dots embossing folder as it was a bit more subtle and didn't clash with the stripes as much and a bright fuchsia ribbon seemed fitting based on that gorgeous up front an centre bright pink flower.

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

Sorry about my sporadic posting.  I've been having such a great time with my kids that stamping has taken a back seat.  Will have a good chuck of stamping time this weekend so the coming week should provide a few more posts starting with my Mojo Monday card :)  Have a great weekend everyone!
