I'm hosting Color Week at Just Us Girls and this is what I've chosen.
I definitely had something in mind when I chose these colors and this is what I ended up making.
The images and sentiment are from a NBUS set from HoneyBee. I masked off the bottom of the card panel and colored it with Frayed Burlap Distress Spray. I wanted that sandy look. Then I masked the sand and colored the sky with Speckled Egg. The flip-flops were inked with Salt Water Taffy, the straps colored with an artist marker and then clear heat embossed. I think this will be fun for a summer birthday.
What do those colors conjure up for you? Come see what the Design Team and our guest designer have made. I'm sure you'll be inspired to make a card for the gallery.

I'm glad to know it's you, Lisa. I've gotten more anonymous emails and thought the language was too familiar to be just anyone. Maybe you need to sign in to an account?Delete
