When working on a color challenge I almost always gather scraps of the colors in question first and start arranging them next to each other or away from each other to determine best placement (in my opinion) of which colors should go next to each other. This time was just more difficult for me - maybe because there were four colors? Or maybe because I think of burgundy and blush and vanilla in the warm family and gray in the cool family? Anyhow - this is what I finally put together:
For my sentiment I used the new Girly, You Rock from Signature Greetings by Dawn McVey sold by PTI. I can't tell you how many times I use this phrase in my comments to fellow stampers - it's FAB to have it as a stamp and I love, love, love Dawn's handwriting. (Must be the ex teacher in me!)
I added my cuttlebugged gray CS as an accent strip then continued to pull the gray into the edge of my oval by using some Metallic Rub on Paste that I got from Gina K Designs - I LOVE how soft and subtle it is but how it adds a richness to the edges. I used the same rub on to color my sateen flowers (also Gina K) then added cream colored pearls to the center.
Hope you'll try your hand at this color challenge - be sure to link to Mr. Linky on the Just Us Girls site so we can see what YOU come up with. Thanks so much for making Just Us Girls wildly successful. We hope that it means you are loving our challenges. :-)
