JUST US GIRLS #320 - Color Week

Hello and good morning! Sharyn is your hostess for Color Week at JUST US GIRLS and I think she's in the 'All Christmas all the time' mode, along with most of us! LOL! She's picked Red, Green and Gold as your colors. Please only use these 3 colors plus any neutrals on your project. Here's my card:

 Here is the inside:

It's hard to tell in the above picture, but I've embossed the image in gold. I also edged both the beige and red panels in gold. Here's a better pic to show that:

That red paper has the lyrics to "Do you hear what I hear" on it. Love that! I added some sparkle with the die cut circle behind the image.

Now it's your turn! We'd love to see what you create using these colors. Just link your project up at Just Us Girls so we can see it! While there, please check out what the other ladies and our Guest Designer, Louise Hodge, have come up with and leave them some bloggy love!

FOR OCTOBER & NOVEMBER ONLY: If you win Chic of the Week in any of our October or November challenges, you are 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 at the end of December, and therefore, will not have a Guest Designer for December.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope to see you in the gallery! Have a great day!
