Just Us Girls #276- COLOR

Our hostess for the COLOR challenge this week is Maria and she's picked some great ones! GREEN, ORANGE AND BLUE! Love them!  See the graphic below and OUR JUGS BLOG for a larger photo and tons of DT inspiration!

And, here's my card...  First a close up. Keep scrolling to see the whole thing, please!  Bear with me~this is my favorite card in awhile and I took a number of photos!
This adorable Fox from Whipper Snapper Designs is a favorite of mine! He is soooo cute!  AND, so fun to color! His name is Rizzo and you can find him HERE.  Rizzo is colored with copics.


I used one of My Favorite Things rounded banners to cut a window in the top two layers of my card-the dp and orange. I taped them together and cut through both at once-no problem or worries about lining up!  Behind that is a layer of Aqua Mist or Pool Party.  That is sponged a bit with baja breeze and coastal cabana.  Wish I'd made it a bit darker...

 The grass die is from Impression Obsession.  Love the height of this grass.  There's one layer behind Rizzo and one layer in front.  The clouds and banner are from Papertrey Ink.  The sentiment is from and SU set, I think.  I used some double sided dimensional tape to cover the back side of my 'window' piece so the foxy is in a sort of shadow box.  My card base is a lime green-not sure whose, but isn't it pretty!

And, here is the inside of my card.  A rectangle cut with MFT's rounded rectangle die, another die cut of grass and a couple more clouds.  Not sure of the sentiment, but birthday, of course!
So, there's my color challenge card! Hope you like it too!
And, please show what you can do with these colors this week!  Our chics of the week in January may win a Guest DT spot for March!  You have until Thursday, Jan. 22 at 9:00 pm ET to link your card on our JUGS blog.
Thanks for swinging by and have a great day!  Cheryl
