Just Us Girls #207 - Color Challenge

Happy Saturday!  What a crazy week at school!  It's only the second week of school and already I'm wiped out!  But I'm so glad it's Saturday because we have a new challenge over at Just Us Girls and I'm the hostess!  Loving these colors I chose this week and I hope you like them too!

I had to do something quick because I was running short on time, so what do you turn to when you need to get a quick card done?  Dies and washi tape!  I used Ruby Rose dies and stamp set with riding hood red and baked brown sugar inks.  Easy peasy!    I added some shimmer with a Wink of Stella pen on the flowers and leaves.  It doesn't show up well in the picture, but it's very shimmery in person.  I'm finally using up the many rolls of washi tape I own too!  The red one is a Martha Stewart one I've had for at least 2 years!  First time using it (of course!).   Some pearls finish off the card. 

I of course had to use a sketch!  I don't think I ever make a card without following some sketch or another!  This one is from Clean & Simple sketches (last week's sketch...I made this card before that challenge ended).  I've always loved their sketches and use them often.
So hop on over to the JUGs blog and the DT blogs to see what they've created.  Here are the links.
Also, don't forget Just Us Girls is looking to add to our design team.  Make sure you check out the blog for details!

Very pretty. Love the flowers and your use of the washi tape. I haven't tried that yet. Will have to give it a try.
