JUST US GIRLS #302 Color Week

Hello crafty peeps! It's Color Week at JUST US GIRLS! Sharyn is your hostess this week and she's picked these bright, fun colors for you to play with! Have no fear, you only need to use a minimum of three of them plus any neutrals. Here's what I came up with:

 Here's the inside of my card:

I made this colorful cover plate for the circle cut out. (that you'll see in a future post) ☺ But I just couldn't throw this piece out, so happy accident, I used the same colors for this challenge! Woot Woot! (Of course, my camera was giving me problems and the bright pink looks much darker. Grrr!) I just popped it up on some foam squares after stamping the sentiment. The heart came from the same set and after stamping it, I covered it with Glossy Accents. Once dried, I fussy cut and adhered. For the inside, I glued the negative bits down, using one of the cover plate cuts as a guide. Another sentiment finishes the inside. 

I hope you get the chance to play along this week at Just Us Girls! Please be sure to check out what my super talented teammies, and our July Guest Designer, Linda Beeson, have come up with, and leave them some bloggy love! Remember that if you are pick as Chic of the Week for any of our July challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of September! Good luck and thanks for stopping by!
