Just Us Girls #293 - Color Week

This time at Just Us Girls it's Color Week.  Chris is our hostess and she has chosen a wonderful color combo for our inspiration.  The colors are coral, green, teal, dark blue & yellow.  You must use three of these colors in addition to any neutrals you need.

Here's my card

I used all five colors plus white and black as my neutrals.  I started with a new background stamp from MFT.  I love the movement of this stamp.  I embossed it with white embossing powder and then sponged the five colors.  It made a very cheery background.  I embossed a border bling stamp in white and embossed the sentiment in black.  It was then sponged with Butter Bar ink and cut out with a Spellbinders die.  The gingham ribbon and enamel dots were added to finish it off.

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

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