Just Us Girls #356 - Trend Week

This time at Just Us Girls it's Trend Week.  Ina is our hostess and she has chosen the trend of Watercolor.  Here is how I was inspired.

I love the colors on this card!  This is the second attempt.  The first one I used light blue and it was too near the color of the flowers because they faded into the background.  The yellow and orange watercolor background really make the flowers pop.

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

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

PTI Forget Me Not
Strathmore Water Color paper
