Bold Bright Colors

Hi gals - today is a color challenge for Just Us Girls brought to you by our hostess Lisa - GREAT summer color palette for you this week - Hot Pink, Lime Green and Teal! I've been working 12-14 hour days getting ready for the return of teachers and students so without further ado here's my card:


Super quick and easy this week - all of it started with this great ribbon that had ALL THREE COLORS!!!


Here's a close up of the JustRite image and sentiment I used from their Stitched With Love set.


I added sparkle to the pins and needle (hard to see in this pic) and some Glossy Accents to the center of the button for some shine and dimension. Nesties used for the shapes - CB embossing folder for the BG texture. Pearls as accents along with a couple of hat pins to keep with the "pins and needles" theme. I LOVE the senti - can give this to a friend OR I could give it to my DD who just returned from her amazzzzzzzzzing honeymoon in Fiji.... *grin*

Stop by the rest of the team and over to our Featured Designer Jo Westfoot too. Hope to see you playing along. Sorry for the short post - got to go for now.

Hugs n smiles,
Stampin Pam
