Just Us Girls #523 - Color Week

Ina has chosen some rather elegant colors for Just Us Girls this week.
My first thought was gold as a metallic but the more I thought about it I went a whole different direction and I love the results.
I stamped the leaves from Altenew's Wallpaper Art in black directly on Gina K ivory cs along with the PTI sentiment.  The flower was stamped on mixed media paper, watercolored with Distress Ink and die cut.

The Design Team and our guest designer Betty Jacobsen have some inspiration for you over on the blog.  Please check them out and make a card for our gallery so you can be eligible for a guest design spot.

ETA:  I'm also sending this card to Altenew for their February Inspiration Challenge.
