Just Us Girls #326 - Color Week

Hi everyone!  It's color week over at Just Us Girls!  We have white, light blue, and dark blue.  Monochromatic always seem easy until I have to sit down and create with them.  That happened with these colors, but I think I just have too many stamps and can't decide what to use!
 
This stitched diagonal die was sitting on my desk, so I die cut it from white cardstock and added the navy pattern paper behind it.  I love this dahlia three-step stamp and stamped it using the Misti tool.  First it was stamped in light blue, then navy (which I dabbed with a cloth to take some ink off of it), then again in navy (full strength).  The sentiment was stamped in navy as well.  I added some pearls then mounted that panel on a white card base.
 
Some of my 5th grade girls Googled me and found my blog!  Hello girls if you are reading this!  I hope you are getting some of that reading done for your January reading log during this long weekend! :-)
 
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our January guests on the JUGs blog.
 
I'm also entering this in a new challenge blog called Double D Challenge.  Their challenge is to use blue and flowers on your card.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
