Just Us Girls #246 - Color

This week's Just Us Girls challenge is hosted by Maria.  She has chosen a color challenge using yellow, orange and neutral.

After thinking about this color combo for a while, I remembered a fruity stamp set by Gina K. Designs called You're the Sweetest.  I decided to make a background of lemon and orange slices.  I used a Spellbinders A2 Curved Border One die to make the curvy border at the bottom and attached it to a piece of The Paper Studios gingham paper.  I added a bright orange ribbon, a button & some twine to pull it all together.  I love it.  It's bright, clean, happy and a little sweet!  Hope you like it too!

Please visit the Just Us Girls page to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team and our GD, Shirley-Bee, have made this week.  I hope you will be inspired by this fun color combo and join in the fun.  We would love to see what you create!

Remember if you win one of our June challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of August.
