Just Us Girls Challenge#21 - Color!

Ooooh lá lá! Who likes a color challenge? [I do I do!]  Maria is our hostess this week and she has a lovely color challenge for you.



How about Coral, Chocolate, Ivory and a splash of Raspberry?! Isn't that a gorgeous combo??


At first I wondered how I would combine coral and raspberry but I just let my mojo take me down the path it wanted to go and I think it worked out A-OK! I returned to an all time favorite PTI stamp set of mine - Wishing You. I think I have spring on the brain - and even though the colors may not be totally spring-like the tulips are :-) I used Lee's fantastic sketch from Gina K's latest release party - I didn't get to play along in time but I still wanted to use the sketch - thanks Lee!

Here's a close up shot so you can see the "splash" of raspberry - just the words and one tulip :-) For CS I used GKD Ivory and Chocolate, PTI Berry Sorbet (didn't have any SU Cameo Coral) and Ripe Raspberry.


I think the creation details on this are fairly obvious so I won't list it all. Simple - straight forward but overall I was pleased with the final outcome. You can't really see it in the photo but I used the Linen BG stamp from SU just inked in Versamark for a subtle texture on the chocolate CS.

I also had to work up the inside on this one since the tulips are just so fun and the dragonfly is one of my favorite little accent guys.

So there you have it - just another birthday card for my stash - somehow I've gotten low on birthdays and thank yous. That must mean I've been using them right?!

Now - please come play along with Just Us Girls and show us your take on these colors. Be sure to visit the JUGS blog and post a link to your project so we can check out what you do. You may be selected as our "Chic of the Week" and, as such, qualify for a future Featured Designer spot.

Speaking of Featured Designer - please be sure you stop by Iwona Palamountain's blog to see what yumminess she has cooked up this week. We are delighted to have Iwona with us for the month of February. :-)

Here's the rest of the Design Team - I promise they have some wonderfulness for you as well. Please stop by and leave a little "love".

Your card is so sweet! You've used a set that has been on my (obnoxiously long) PTI wish list since it came out and I always love seeing it in use. There's just something so Happy about tulips! :> I love how perfectly you finished it off on the inside too! :>
