Just Us Girls #237 - Colour Challenge

JUGS 237 photo JUGS237picA.jpg

It's colour challenge week and Sue V. has provided this fabulous colour combination for us to work with - love these colours together! 

MME's Six by Six papers provided my colours, even though they are more a peach and teal versus a true orange and blue...shhhhh ;)

 Love Lil' Inker's stitched circles as they add just that little something something, and the sentiment is from a set Debbie sent me which I just love (thanks again, Debbie!).  Keeping with the MFT theme, I used Pretty Posies and butterfly die too.  

The rest of the  JUGS team, along with the our April Guest Designer Lee Anne, 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.

Have a fabulous Easter weekend!

I love the twine on this card...it adds just the perfect touch of texture.

Some great colors together. The sentiment is one that would really warm someone's heart but that cool peach Moroccan print in the back is my favorite. You always come up with the best papers! Happy Easter my friend! Hugz!

Beautiful card, Marisa - love those papers as, yet again, you show your keen eye for colour/pattern design. Adding my voice to the others who find the twine wonderful, and of course, another swoon-fest over the wee butterfly! Fabulous!!
