Just Us Girls #246 - Colour Challenge

JUGS 246 photo JUGS246picA.jpg

Maria has given us a cheery colour combination to work with this week. Personally, I love yellow and orange so this card was great fun to make.

I used an old Paper Players sketch along with new papers from Making
Memories and Simple Stories.  The sentiment is a Verve's Zephaniah 3:17 Plain Jane, a perfect fit for the friend I am sending this to. She has had a tough year, and I trust this fabulous verse will encourage her.  Entering it into the current NBUS theme of friendship.

The rest of the  JUGS team along with our June Guest Designer, Shirley-Bee, have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog and check out what they've created.  Simply create a card using the sketch and link it up to the JUGS blog for a chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week.  Remember, if you are chosen as Chic of the Week, you could be invited to be a Guest Designer.

Wishing you a fabulous weekend!

What a wonderful card! Love the saying/sentiment as your focal point! Well done!

Your layers and matting are always so impeccably done, Marisa! I love the focal treatment, of course, but you make the kind of cards that deserve the viewer's time to see the incredible amount of detail you give your creations beyond the focal point! This card is amazing! Thank you so much for joining in my NBUS Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell
