JUST US GIRLS #385 Color Week

Hello crafty friends! It's Color Week at JUST US GIRLS! Lisa is your hostess and she's picked
the colors Pink, Purple, and Grey for you to play with.
My card has all colors, the bow is purple, but it's such a dark purple that it looks 
black in my photo. Sorry!

Here is the inside:

I used a few NBUS on this card: that die cut floral wreath, the die cut bow. and the sentiment. My goal is to actually start using the craft supplies I buy, and not just hoard them. (*cough*)
This may look CAS, but cutting the wreath twice from grey and pink CS just so I could inlay the
pink petals was rather time consuming. LOL!

I hope you have a chance to make something for our Color Challenge at Just Us Girls! We'd love to
see what you come up with. For more ideas, please check out what the Design Team, and our
Guest Designer, Nancy Salkeld, have created and leave them some bloggy lovin!

  1. Great colour combo, hope I can play. Fabulous cas card. I am so not good at them.

  2. Love how simple this card is and looks so good. Don't you hate it when your camera does the wrong thing by you - purple is the worst.

  3. Hello Chris: I'm so happy to see you beautiful card in out gallery at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, that wreath is so delicate and so lovely and it makes the most perfect CAS card.
    I know what you mean about hoarding stuff, I have a few dies and stamps that are patiently waiting to see some action, LOL!!
    Thank you so much for playing along with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, hope to see you back in the gallery again soon.

  8. The extra effort of die cutting the wreath twice was worth it! I love that little touch of pink! Very pretty card! Good for you to actually use those new craft supplies!

  9. It was time well spent, Chris. This is lovely.
