JUST US GIRLS #315 - Color Week

Hello and good morning crafty peeps! It's COLOR WEEK at JUST US GIRLS, and I'm your hostess! With Halloween just around the corner, (and it being my favorite holiday!), I picked Purple, Orange, and Black for you to get creative with! Here's the card I made:

Here's the finished inside:

I'm on a shaker card roll apparently, and I had a lot of fun putting this card together. The background was sponged with a few Distress Inks and spritzed with some pearl Glimmer Mist. Then I went to town adding seed beads, micro beads, and shaped confetti for the shaker part. (Note to self: confetti is really static-y and even though I went over the background and the acetate with my anti-static pillow, they still stuck!) Oh well, it's still a fun card to shake! LOL!

I hope you get a chance to play around with these colors and link up at Just Us Girls! You'll notice that even though these are Halloween colors, some of the gals used them in a completely different way, and that's awesome! Please do check out what the design team, and our October Guest Designer - Julie Gearinger, have created for your viewing pleasure, and leave them some love on their blogs! 

For October & November Only: If you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our October and November challenges, you'll be in the running to be chosen as one of two Guest Designers for the month of January 2016! The Team will be taking a 2 week break in December, so we will not have a Guest Designer for December. Good luck and happy crafting!
