Just Us Grls Challenge #335: Color Week

Greetings my friends!

I apologize, but this post is going to be short and sweet.  Working about 80 hours this week, plus inventory this weekend, makes for very limited personal time.  Hopefully, I will get some rest on Sunday.

I'm back with my next guest card for Just Us Girls.  This week is a Color Week: Pink, Yellow and Purple.  Here is the card I created.


Again, I'm attempting to keep it CAS here.  I wanted to incorporate the colors in a non Easter kind of card.  I inked up the background panel and then added the top panel, that was cut with my circle dies, with foam adhesive.  I then added some purple splatters, and some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.  After that, I embossed my sentiment on black cardstock for a contrast of color, and added it to my card.  This is my take on Sunday Stamps Challenge #122, which is a sketch.  I'm excited to get this in the mail to a great friend, who has been very helpful recently. 

That's all for me today.  I'm off to get some sleep, and start another day of work in the morning.  I'm hoping you'll head over to the Just Us Girls blog to see the other gorgeous projects that are posted today.  Hopefully you'll get to join us for this challenge also. :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Fun cards Steph, love the negative colour spots and the dimension! Hope you get some sleep girl!

Here we have snow rather than rain, but its okay by me as I am happy to spend a few more weeks skiing! lol - my friends and acquaintances scowl at me this time of year because I walk around with a big smile whenever it snows! tee hee. Enjoying skiing sure makes winter more enjoyable!

80 hour work weeks?! Where did you ever find the time to crank out this awesome card?! Love that you took the colors and used them for a thank you card instead of an Easter/Spring themed card! Yet another great project you created for Just Us Girls!!

Well your friends is going to be so happy to receive this card. I love that it's so CAS - a perfect take on the challenge. I would never have thought to use kraft with these colors, but it works perfectly. And then the sequins are just the perfect final touch!!!

I love your clean design on this and beautiful use of the colors! The cut out circles with the pastels and that white embossed sentiment on the black look fantastic!
