A Rose for You

It's a Just Us Girls colorific Saturday! Yep Kathryn is our hostess this week and she has chosen red, black and green (with an optional neutral) as our colors this week. Yum!

Here's my take on this weeks' colors...


I seem to be low on birthday cards so I decided to make one to add to my stash. I started with one of my all time favorite images from Gina K by Melanie Muenchinger - the rose from A Year of Flowers. I stamped it on Gina K Pure Luxury Ivory CS then colored it with copics. I cut out the colored image with a nestie Label 9 then mounted that over a Large scalloped nestie oval in green.  For my black BG I used my MS trellis punch and then my swirls cuttlebug on the top part for a richly textured BG.

I added a few pearls to the bottom and a small ribbon topped off with a button accent.  I left the sentiment for the inside...


I again used Gina K stamps to create my verse inside. This is two stamps from the Inside and Out set. I also added another rose to the corner of the inside. Below you can see a side view with the peek at the inside.


I hope you will get your mojo on and come color with JUGS this week. Be sure to stop by the design team (in my sidebar -->) for a look at their creations and our Featured Designer this month Lynn Mangan who also has a lovely card to share.

Have a great weekend.
