JUST US GIRLS #331 - Color Week


Hello and welcome friends! It's Color Week at JUST US GIRLS! Cheryl is your hostess this week and she's come up with a trio of BLUES for you to craft with: Teal, Aqua and Navy. Neutrals, such as white, black, kraft, ivory, etc. can be used also. Here's what I came up with:


This could have been made easier if I used the navy for the flower base and the teal for the outline, but nnnoooooooo! I had to die cut the outline 3 times and Frankenstein it back together. LOL! But it was worth it, as I like how it gives the flower a sort of stained glass look to it. (Well, that's my story and I'm sticking with it!) The sentiment was stamped and clear embossed, although you can't tell that from my photo. I scattered some rhinestones and called it done. ☺

I hope you get a chance to play along this week at Just Us Girls! I'd love to see what you create with these colors. Please do yourself a favor and check out what my teammates created, along with our Guest Designer Pamellia! Just a reminder, if you are chosen as Chic of the Week for any of our February challenges, you'll be in the running to be our next Guest Designer for the month of April! Good luck and happy crafting!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
