JUST US GIRLS #311 - Color Week!

Hiya crafty peeps! It's Color Week at JUST US GIRLS! Maria is your hostess with the mostest and she's picked some gorgeous colors for you to be inspired by: ORANGE, RED, and YELLOW! These colors just scream Autumn! Here's the card I made:

Here is the inside:

The background panel was made by stamping and clear embossing the background stamp, then going over it with a few Distress Inks. After that I spritzed it with some pearl Glimmer Mist for a bit of shimmer. I stamped and fussy cut the pumpkin and adhered it with foam squares. (Looking at that pumpkin has made me think that I need to get a MISTI, And I will. When I get back from my beach vacation. That I've been on for the past week and sadly am leaving to come back home today. Insert sad trumpet sound here.) 

So, time for you to break out those inks/pattern papers/markers, etc., and join the fun at Just Us Girls! Please be sure to check out what my teammates and our Guest Designer, Melissa, have made! Remember that if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our September challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of November! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
