Just Us Girls #250 - Color Week

Hi all!  It's our 250th challenge at Just Us Girls!  We've been doing this for almost 5 years!  Wow!  Maria Levine and I have been on the team since the beginning and we've had some amazing teammates and guest designers in those 250 challenges!  Our current team is fabulous and is keeping this challenge blog trending and moving forward.  We hope you like our new line-up, which you can see below.
 
This week is Color Week and Vicki has chosen a great summery color combo.
 
I recently purchased the Sprinkles and Shakers Make It Market kit from Tammy Herschberger who was selling hers (thanks Tammy!).  I hemmed and hawed about buying it originally, and was sorry I didn't.  Then I saw Tammy putting hers up for sale and I jumped on it!  I love the dies in it!  So I decided to make a shaker card with these colors.  I started by stamping the three colors using the Ombre Builders stamp set.  then I cut the frames, the clear cardstock, and the adhesive sheet.  Then I started building the shaker part.  Inside the shaker are sequins in turquoise and green and micro beads.  I then added more sequins on the outside of the frame.  I thought the sentiment was a fun one to put on the inside.
 
In celebration of our 250th challenge, we are being sponsored by Dare 2B Artzy.  Our Chic of the Week will win their choice of stamp set of $14.99 or less!
