Just Us Girls - Color Challenge

Happy Saturday! Just Us Girls has issued a fab color challenge which Kathryn put together. Red, green, black, and a neutral color.
When I saw these colors, I thought I would create a Christmas card, but then I remembered that today is my in-laws 56th wedding anniversary. My next thought was to use some Graphic 45 paper I knew I had in my stash. So this is what I came up with.
The Graphic 45 papers I used are from the Botanicabella and Fashionista collections, and the sentiment is from Verve's Wishing You sentiment set. I swirled some distress inks around the sentiment while it was still in the die and then added some green pearls. I used one of the new dies for the circle (can't remember the name of it!) and SU's scallop border punch on the black dp. The ribbon was part of a gift I received from my PMS fellow design team member, Bonnie Sharp. It's from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, and it's so lucious! It hurt to cut into it cause I just want to hoard it! But it was the perfect color for my card. I used a Bow Easy to make my double bow.

I used Mercy Kerin's Tuesday Sketch from this week. It was perfect for my card.

Now you have to stop by the JUGs blog and see the girls' cards using these colors. They are amazing once again! We also have Lynn Mangan as our Guest Designer this month, and she has been creating some beautiful cards for you to see!

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend!
