Just Us Girls #374 - Color Week

Hi everyone!  I'm the hostess for this week's Color Week Challenge over at Just Us Girls.  I saw these colors on a colleague's dress and thought it was very interesting. 
I've been wanting to use these mittens from My Favorite Things.  I don't see them on there site, so I'm assuming they are discontinued.  Funny that they are discontinued and this is the first time I'm using them!  My motto:  Too many stamps/dies, not enough time!
Anyway, I die cut them from white cardstock and stamped them in the navy and orchid inks.  I love them!  They are so cute, and I can see stamping them in a bunch of different colors, can't you?  The background was stamped using the Sweater Stitch background stamp.  I added some gold hearts to the mittens that the gold "string" is attached to.  Added the sentiment and I was done.  (I wish the card came together as easy as it was to write this up!)
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our guest, Teresa, on the JUGs blog.  This is Teresa's last week with us.  We loved her creations!
As a note, the JUGs blog is taking a much needed break for the holidays.  We will be back with new challenges on Saturday, January 7, 2017.
Happy Holidays!
