Just Us Girls #606 - Color Week

It's Color Week at Just Us Girls and the colors our host Lisa has chosen are


You know those colors said flowers to me, right?  Here's what I did.


The image is one I stamped a long time ago when I had a crafting day with Michele.  I had to call her to find out that it's from Penny Black.  It's colored with Zigs and looked great when things went downhill.  I got a little heavy handed with the black splatters.  I tried to compensate with some white ones but the gouache must have been too watered down and faded right into the Bristol when they dried.  By then I had already attached the heat embossed sentiment so there was no do-over.  

Enough of my sad story.  What will you do with these colors for our challenge?  I do hope to see your card in our gallery.  For inspiration please check out what the Design Team and our guest Nora Noll have made.
