Just Us Girls Challenge #12 - Color

Good morning girls! It's Saturday - one week to go till Christmas. Are you ready? OK - just a quick post today - this week Just Us Girls has a color challenge for you hosted by Tracey. The colors this week are Kraft, Red, Green (think New Leaf or Wild Wasabi), and Raspberry. WOW!

I wasn't QUITE ready to let go of holiday/winter cards so here's my take on the colors this week:

I inked up Magnolia's adorable Snowie With Bells image for my focal point. Tracey - Sorry but I added a touch of dark brown to mat my green and pink layers, since they looked too plain without a mat layer. All the paper is PTI this week - Pure Poppy, New Leaf, Raspberry and Kraft. I stamped some PTI snowflakes with white on the Kraft layer, embossed the pink and green layers with my CB.  Snowie was stamped and then colored with Copics - tried to make her jacket look kind of like suede (to match the Kraft.)

Here is a close up of Snowie.

I added lots of fun snowflake embellishments, a simple new leaf ribbon bow and lots of sparkle with my At You Spica glitter pen (it doesn't show up in the photo - sorry). This is for a special young lady so I just had fun with the colors and the embellishments. I think she will LOVE it! Thanks, Tracey for a great challenge.

I used Mercy's Tuesday sketch MTSC51 for my layout - thanks Mercy for such great sketches!!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Just Us Girls design team for more inspiration. Meanwhile - have a GREAT holiday - I'll be somewhat MIA as I enjoy time with family!!!
