Just Us Girls - A Color Challenge

Saturday...my favorite day of the week! The beginning of the weekend and time for another Just Us Girls challenge. This week is a color challenge, and Maria has a lovely one for us today.When Maria first told us her colors, she said, "ivory, chocolate, and coral with a touch of raspberry" I thought it sounded like it would make a great drink! :-) But instead of making a great drink, I made this card. I thought the colors had a sort of vintage feel, so I picked up this Crafty Secrets set called Sweet Kids. I looked through my dp and chose SU's Raspberry Tart. It had the coral and raspberry colors I needed in it. I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch and was on my way. I also used this lucious chocolate satin ribbon from SU (retired). (I don't like the way my card photographed. I don't know why I couldn't capture the colors better!)

If you want more inspiration, go to the JUGs blog. The girls really have some fabulous designs for you! You can also visit their personal blogs here:
