Just Us Girls #289 - Color Week

This week at Just Us Girls it's Color Week.  Lisa is our hostess and she has chosen  Brown, White or Beige and one color of your choice.  This one took come thought, but I finally came up with a card using just the three colors.  Can't wait to see what you come up with!

My colors are white, dark chocolate and grass green.  I love this color combo.  I picked a stamp set from Flourishes called Grab a Cup and one from PTI called Drips & Dribbles.  The background was stamped with a background stamp from My Favorite Things called Linen.  I embossed the sentiment in Dark Chocolate and added some Doodlebug Sprinkles.  The die cut is from Lil' Inkers.

Please visit the Just Us Girls blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team and our GD, Kathy, have made this week.  I hope you will be inspired and want to play along.

If you win Chic of the Week in any of our April challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of June.  Good luck!
