Just Us Girls #276 - Color Challenge

Hi friends!  This week over at Just Us Girls is color week.  Maria chose three great colors...green, orange, and blue!
 
I have a friend who recently had her gall bladder removed and I needed to send a card to her.  I thought this friend die was a perfect choice.  The decorative paper that immediately came to mind when I saw the colors Maria chose was SU's retired Jersey Shore.  I've always loved this paper!  I die cut the friend die from navy cardstock and the dotted paper was die cut with the stitched scallop border die.  The sentiment border and sentiment are from a Tim Holtz set.  I added some Wink of Stella shimmer to the friend die and some candy dots.
 
You can see more from the design team and our guest on these blogs.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

I love the fun colors in this challenge and I also have this die and friends that need to get well. So, that means I better get cracken and copy this card. Love it!
