Just Us Girls #272 - Color Week

This week at Just Us Girls it's Color Week.  Ina is hosting and she has chosen a very beautiful and vibrant color combo for us.  Here's how I was inspired.

I am using another beautiful stamp set from W Plus 9.  This one is called Quilt Prints.  The background was created with this stamp and by using some fun ink colors from Gina K. Designs called Black Onyx, Passionate Pink, Wild Lilac & Turquoise Sea.  I added a stitched diagonal piece from Lil' Inkers in Passionate Pink.  The white notched edge border is from My Favorite Things.  The "thanks" script is from Mama Elephant and was cut three times and glued together.   The hearts are from Verve and I added one little pink gem.  Thanks so much for coming by to look!

The Recipe:

W Plus 9 Quilt Prints
GKD Black Onyx, Passionate Pink, Wild Lilac & Turquoise Sea ink
Mama Elephant Thanks Script
MFT Notched Border
Lil' Inkers On The Diagonal die
Verve Heart Quartet

Please visit the Just Us Girls blog to see the wonderful cards the rest of the team and our GD, Lee Ann, have made this week.  I can't wait to see how you are inspired by these beautiful colors!

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