Just Us Girls #189 - Color Challenge

Happy Saturday!  Today is a special day for my family because my nephew is finally graduating from college today!  Mark is such a great guy...full of fun and adventure.  I wish him all the best and am so proud of him!  
 
Today also begins a new challenge from Just Us Girls.  It's a color challenge and Vicki has chosen some great colors. 

Here's my take on the colors.   The stamped design was created using Papertrey Ink's Modern Basics in Cameo Coral and Sahara Sand inks.  I mounted it on Cameo Coral cardstock.  The banner is Sahara Sand and I stamped the sentiment from Happy Trails in Versamark and embossed it in white.  The butterfly was cut with the Heart-2-Heart #10 die and stamped with the coordinating stamp in Cameo Coral.  I added bling to the antennae and some to the coral panel.  It's mounted on white and the base is Crumb Cake.  I'm going to send this to the mother who chaperoned our field trip yesterday.  She was a great chaperone to the kids, and it was nice having her on the trip with me.

I used this Clean and Simple sketch.  

The JUGs design team has some great inspiration for you.  Check out these blogs.
