JUST US GIRLS #377 Color Week

Hello and welcome! It's my week to host over at JUST US GIRLS. It's Color Week, and I've chosen Pink, Navy, and Gray as your color palette. Here's the card I made:

 and the inside:

I started by embossing a pattern onto my gray card base. I die cut the scalloped layer from white glitter paper. (which is really hard to see in my picture, but trust me, this card sparkles!) The navy panel was heat embossed with the sentiment in silver before adhering to the glitter paper with foam tape. I die cut the blossoms, left the cut out in the die, and sponged over it with pink ink, adhered to the card, then dotted the centers with silver Stickles. On the inside, I cut another panel from the gray cardstock, stamped the sentiment, and edged the sides with blue ink before adhering.

I hope that you can play along in our color challenge at Just Us Girls! We'd love to see your take on these colors. For more inspiration, check out what the Design Team and our Guest Designer, Shawna, came up with. You won't be disappointed! 

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a great day!
