Just Us Girls - Color Challenge

Just Us Girls has a great color challenge for you today! Andrea chose a refreshing color palette for us this week....a nice respite from the traditional red and green we've all been using a lot lately! Although I still used these colors to make a Christmas card! It was a super quick one, as I had to get my Christmas cards written and in the mail! The dp is SU's retired Wintergreen, and the ribbon is PTI's Aqua Mist. It doesn't look like it matches very well in the picture, but it really does look nice in person. I made a bow using the Bow Easy and added some jingle bells. The sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo's Ornate Christmas stamped in Memento Tuxedo black. See? Super simple! Kind of hard to mail with the bells, so maybe I'll give this to one of the secretaries at work so it doesn't have to go postal!

The JUGs DT have created some beautiful cards with these colors. Stop by the JUGs blog for more inspiration and hopefully play along with us this week! We are taking next week off seeing that it's Christmas Day, but we will be back on New Year's Day with a sketch challenge! Enjoy your weekend!
