Just Us Girls #232 - Color

Welcome to this week's Just Us Girls Challenge

Cheryl is our hostess this week, and she has picked out a gorgeous combo for our Color Challenge.  I love these colors!

Here's my card

I created the background with two stamp sets from Stampin' Up called Off Grid & Gorgeous Grunge using Memento Daffodil, Pear Tart, and Gina K. Designs Ocean Mist and Kraft ink.  My focal image is a stamp set from Flourishes called Wild Roses.  I colored it with Copic markers.  The diagonal Ocean Mist panel is stamped in GKD Kraft ink.  I really love the look of this background!
