Just Us Girls #211 - Color Challenge

Hi everyone!  Just Us Girls has a cool color challenge going on this week.  Nancy chose this very beautiful color combination that I just adore!

 I just got this Joy Photo Card Frame die from My Favorite Things and cut it out twice (using the die-cut inlay technique from last week).  Once from marina mist and again from sahara sand and put them together.  The marina mist piece was run through PTI's woodgrain impression plate and accented with tea dye distress ink.  Then I cut some snowflakes from SU's retired Parisian Breeze paper using MFT's Let It Snowflake dies.  I made them sparkle with distress clear rock candy stickles.  It gave a subtle sparkle.  I added a button and twine bow and mounted everything on soft suede base.  (And now that I'm looking at this color combo on my laptop, I see that there are more grays than browns.  It looked more brown on my iPad than on my laptop.  Oh well!)

I had a couple of snowflakes left over, so I put them together and stamped a sentiment from MFT's free set Cheerful Christmas Greetings in soft suede for the inside of the card.

You can see more inspiration from the JUGs design team at these blogs.
