Hello!! This week Just Us Girls has a color challenge for you, brought to you by our own Sue V. She picked some great colors to work with-green, blue and any neutrals! You can see loads of inspiration to get you started HERE on our Blog! Check it out! You won't be sorry!
Now, for my card. I went to my friend Luanne's house this week and she had some of this apple basket stamped on watercolor paper. Luanne is the best I know at watercoloring with ink pads, so as she colored hers, I copied her!! She decided on green apples with the blue checkerboard cloth. We each colored four and when I see her this Monday she wants to see what I created with them. Imagine how excited I was when I checked on the JUGS challenge and saw the colors! Happy, happy!
I used soft suede behind my little four square quilt, then Lucky Limeade. That piece was run through the SU embossing folder to make a puffy quilt. The plaid paper is Enchanted Evening from Papertrey INk (as is the solid blue). the card base is Kraft.
I made it into a hinge type card. You cut a piece of cs 4.25x11" and score at 5.5". then open and score the inside at 1.25". That side piece becomes a fun, little design area of its own and you tape that piece on the insede to the back of the card-Voila! The "hinge". I hope that makes sense!

You have until Thursday, August 21 at 9 pm ET to enter your card/project for this color challenge. We certainly would love to see what you've done with these colors!
In the mean time, thanks so much for coming by!
