JUST US GIRLS #276 - Color Week!

Hello there and welcome crafty peeps! Maria is our Hostess for Color Week at JUST US GIRLS, Love the inspiration pic she found! Here's what I came up with:

 and the inside:

I used an older Sweet Sunday Sketch (#226) for my design. After coloring the image, I added Glossy Accents on the balloons. The flower was made with a pre-cut die from a box-o-dies I bought, like, 7 years ago. I inked the edges with frost white ink. Over that is a chipboard button and finally on top of that is a brad. Kinda fun making my own embellishment from supposedly unrelated items! ☺

Want to play along? Of course you do! Just link up your card or project at Just Us Girls so we can see it! While there, check out what my teammies, and our January Guest Designer, Judy, have created for your viewing pleasure. Remember, if you are the winner for any of the January challenges, you'll be in the running for our Guest Designer for the month of March! Have fun and good luck!
