Just Us Girls #207 - Colour Challenge

JUGS 207 photo JUGS207picA.jpg

Today's challenge is brought to us by Lisa and she has a wonderful mix of colours for us to work with!

For some reason, I was in the mood to make a Christmas card.  Think it was the colour combo and then seeing Lesley's Merry Monday challenge.

I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try pulled out my beloved snowflake die - yeah!  Love using non-traditional Christmas colours, and with a few pops of red, some gold bells and a bit of gold bling I was set.

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.   In addition, there is a DT call out for some new members to join the Just Us Girls team! Check today's post for all the details.

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