JUST US GIRLS #339 Color Week


Good morning and welcome friends! Judy is your hostess for Color Week at JUST US GIRLS! She's picked some very soft, pretty colors for you to design with: Lavender, Peach, and Ivory. As always, please use only these three colors plus any neutrals. (black, white, kraft, brown, gray) Sneaking in any additional colors will keep you from being chosen as Chic of the Week (You know who you are! LOL!) Onto my cards. Yes, plural. I made three cards!


I made three identical cards using one die and paper piecing the bits and pieces. I searched my stash of flowers and found some that were ivory with a newsprint design on them. One of them had bright green stamen in the center, so I cut them off and glued a couple smaller peach flowers and a rhinestone in the center. 




 The inside is stamped the same for all cards.

I hope you get a chance to play along for Color Week at Just Us Girls! We can't wait to see what you create for this challenge! Remember, that if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our April challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of June! Good luck and happy crafting!

  13. The thing about using a coverplate is that you can end up with more than one card. With ones as lovely as these, I'm glad you did use the parts for three cards.

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'.
