Just Us Girls #228 - Color

Welcome to this week's Just Us Girls Challenge

Sharyn here, and it's my turn to be your hostess for a color challenge.  I found this wonderful picture full of bright and happy colors that I thought would be fun to play with this week.  Doesn't it make you want to smile!  You need to use at least 3 of the colors and, of course, neutrals that you need.  Have fun with it!

Here's my card

When I saw the picture of the brightly colored candy, the first thing I thought of was birthday balloons.  The stamp set I am using is from PTI and is called Balloon Bash.  Isn't this a fun set!

Memento Dandelion ink
Spellbinders Big Scalloped Rectangles
Happigirl by Dena patterned paper
Kiwi Embroidery Paper patterned paper
GKD Gingham ribbon

Okay, I couldn't stop at just one!  I just received this super cute set from PTI, and I thought it was perfect to showcase all of the great colors in the color challenge.  What do you think?  The Cover Plate Hearts Die makes the frame and cuts out all of the hearts. The Happy Hearts stamp set has 12 beautiful heart designs to choose just add the color!

I hope you will check out the Just Us Girls page to see what the other talented ladies and our GD, Melissa Hubert, have come up with this week.  After the cold, snowy Winter we have had these last few weeks (at least where I live) I hope you will be inspired by these beautiful colors to create something wonderful.  We would love to see it!

Just a reminder:  If you win Chic of the Week in any of our February challenges, you are in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of April.
