Just Us Girls #72 - Color Challenge

Happy Saturday! It's time for another color challenge from Just Us Girls! Today, Kathryn is our hostess and she has chosen some really pretty colors...melon, light aqua, and kraft. Here's what I did with them.The damask is from Papertrey Ink's Damask Designs and the sentiment is from Just the Ticket, also from PTI. I stamped the damask in SU's groovy guava, cut and embossed with a nestie, and then I swirled some antique linen distress ink around it. The dp is Basic Grey's Marrakech. I made a small bow with some shabby seam binding from Debbie Marcinkiewicz's Etsy shop. A mini prima rose and some pearls finished it off. The sketch is from this week's Splitcoast sketch.

We have a very special new addition to our Just Us Girls team. Elise Durenberger. She is going to be a delightful addition to our team for sure! Please visit her blog and welcome her.

Stop by the JUGs blog and see what the other girls have created with these colors! Thanks for stopping in today and have a great weekend!
