Just Us Girls #306 - Color Week

This time at Just Us Girls it's Color Week.  Ina is our hostess and she has chosen red, black, grey and neutrals as our inspiration.

Here's my card

This was a fun color combo to work with and not one that I usually use.  I made the background using a Background Basics Art Deco stamp and some grey flannel & black onyx ink.  I pulled out a Verve flower set that I haven't used in a long time and stamped the flowers in Cherry Red ink.  Since I couldn't use green for the leaves, I stamped them in grey.  I added some stitched circle dies and embossed the sentiment in black.

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

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