Just Us Girls #357 - Color Week

Hi friends!  I'm the hostess at Just Us Girls this week for our color challenge.   I saw a box at Hobby Lobby a while ago and loved the colors and wanted to use them on a card.  The box was white and had aqua and kraft triangles on it.  So those are the colors I chose.

This is the box I saw that inspired my color choices.

I wanted to incorporate the triangles on that box and here's what I came up with.  I used a triangle background stamp and some aqua ink for the bottom part of the card.  I used a vine die as a border and stamped and die cut the flowers and leaves.  I stamped more aqua flowers and added the sequins and the stacked thanks die.  I also added some white dots on the flowers with a white gel pen.  For some shimmer, I used a Spectrum Noir crystal clear brush.
I used this week's CAS(E) this Sketch as my layout inspiration.
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our August guest on the JUGs blog.

I love how you were inspired by that box, Lisa. The vines as a break between the triangles and plain paper works beautifully.
