Just Us Girls #33 - Color Challenge

Hi everyone! The Just Us Girls color challenge is being hosted by me this week. I thought with Memorial Day coming in just two weeks, I'd choose patriotic colors. I also just found out, from reading LeAnne's post, that today, May 15th, is Armed Forces Day! How perfect to honor our armed forces with these great colors!
I love red, white, and blue. And the addition of kraft is such a fun option! Here's what I did.I chose these colors a while ago, so I was on the hunt for a great image and paper to work with. I found this image (by Whipper Snapper called Grill Sergeant) at my LSS, Buffalo Stamps & Stuff, and decided it was perfect. What better way to start off the summer months than with grilling? I printed the sentiment on my computer on the kraft paper since I did not have one that fit the bill! (Gotta love technology!) The paper is by Magnolia Ink (the same company that makes the Magnolia Tilda and Edwin images). Again, a perfect find! One sheet is blue with white dots (sort of covered up) and the other is the striped red and white. I added a touch of the ribbon and the patriotic stars.

The JUGs girls have really knocked it out of the ball park this week with their challenge cards. You can see them on the JUGs blog and on their personal blogs.


Hope to see you playing with Just Us Girls! Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

Hi Lisa. Thanks for a great color challenge this week. Awesome job on your own challenge. Great masculine card. Grillin' or braaing as we refer to it in South Africa is like a national sport over here (rain or shine).
