Just Us Girls #228 - Colour Challenge

JUGS 228 photo JUGS228picA.jpg

This week's hostess is Sharyn and she has this fabulous photo for our colour challenge this week.  I decided to go with a rainbow theme and bring out the butterflies as these colours just made me happy :)

This week's Freshly Made Sketch was a great fit for what I had in mind.  I used Lil' Inkers stitched circle dies (love these!)  for a bit of texture on the circles and even managed to find some pink, gingham paper for my background.  A happy coincidence was the sentiment banner.  It was left over from another project and somehow managed to fall across the card while I was working on it.  I loved the look of the vertical banner and decided to use it.  A little freelancing on the sketch, but hopefully the FMS police are okay with it wink, wink.

The rest of the  JUGS team, along with our February Guest Designer Melissa Hubert, have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog and check out what they've 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.  Plus if you are chosen as Chic of the Week, you could be invited to be a Guest Designer.  

Cuing up for a very wet weekend - ugh!!  As fate would  have it, my son has two soccer games this weekend so it's going to be very soggy on the sidelines -- double ugh!  Think we'll come home, dry off, and warm up by snuggling on the couch as a family as we watch the Olympics -- go team Canada!!

This card says Spring and I like it very much. Can't wait to see some of those b'flies fluttering around this summer. Very colorful and wonderful creation.
