Just Us Girls - Color Challenge

Hi everyone! Sorry my JUGs post is going up so late! I'm the hostess this week for the Just Us Girls challenge, and I was so concerned with getting the JUGs post up (because I was at a conference in Saratoga Springs, NY on Friday and Saturday), that I forgot to do my own personal post! So here it is!I've chosen these colors from my Vera Bradley laptop bag in the Pirouette pattern. I thought they would be good for holiday cards or any occasion cards. Here's mine.
I thought I had flower dies from Papertrey Ink to match the flowers on the Vera Bradley bag, but alas I did not! So I found this patterened paper from PTI called Black & White Basics. I just colored the flowers in with copic markers to match the challenge colors. I ran the black piece through a Cuttlebug folder that reminded me of the quilted bag. The flower is a Spellbinder die and I just ran the pieces through a paper crimper a few times, then layered it with glue dots and put the glittered flower in the center. Then I put chunky glitter on the flower with some glue. The sketch is from this week's Mojo Monday. The sentiment is a free one from Paper Makeup Stamps that you receive with every order this month.

Stop by the JUGs blog to see the fabulous creations the girls made. You can visit their personal blogs through links on the blog post. Also, please visit our featured designer, Cheryl Rowley, and say hello!

Thanks for stopping by today!

That is just the PERFECT inspiration paper, Lisa!! I don't think you could get much closer without an exact match. Sounds like you are a busy lady this weekend. Hope you get a little R&R before Monday!! Hugs~
