Just Us Girls #47 - Color Challenge


Happy Saturday! It's time for a color challenge from Just Us Girls! I'm the hostess this week and I chose the happy colors! I wanted something that screamed summer, so I chose hot pink, teal, and lime green. I found these colors in the DeLovely paper pack from Cosmo Cricket.I just loved this image from The Greeting Farm (called Laundry) that I got at my LSS, Buffalo Stamps & Stuff, one day. I'm always doing laundry when I craft since my craft room and laundry room are in the basement. I don't mind doing the laundry, but I HATE folding it and putting it away! So this image really resonated with me!

She's colored with copics and I added lots of Star Dust Stickles to the image. The felt flowers are from SU and are centered with a lime green glitter dot. The sentiment is from PTI's All Booked Up set. The layout is from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Stop by the JUGs blog and see what the girls have come up with using these colors! Some fab stuff there! Leave them some nice comments on their personal blogs too! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Enjoy your weekend!

Hee hee Lisa! I live this image all the time! I'm with you, I like clean clothes but the endless folding and putting away only to take them out again, blech!

Thanks for the great color scheme this week. I adore these hot hues and loved using Delovely on my card as well. Great mat layering with just the bit of scallop square peeking out from behind the image square.
