Just Us Girls #293 COLOR week

Hello!  It's color week at Just Us Girls and Chris has a great one that will give you OPTIONS!!!
Take a look!



I didn't have to think twice about using some (light) teal and coral with a bit of green!  I adore these colors!  I've had this stamp set (Bordering on Romance) from SU for a long time and only inked it up a couple of times!  I'm a bit late with my post because work has me worn out these days and I wasn't feeling the creative spirit.  But, this morning I pulled out my Xpress it blending and some copics and got to work! Not work, when you love it!

Here are a couple of pics of the result and I'm pretty happy with it.  I used some YRs for my large flowers and buds. BGs for the teal, and YGs for the leaves.  I surrounded the colored image with Ws and then cut with my ~~NEW~ MFT crosss stitch dies! OMG! I'm in love!! I left the cardstock in the die and stenciled Sahara Sand on my Xpress it and Crisp Cantaloupe ink on the Crisp Cant. piece.   Finally, the card base is Pool Party.  It's stamped in Pool Party with my Impression Obsession 6" gingham stamp (another fave!!). Edges are sponged with more PP.  Some PTI ribon finished off my card.
I hope you like it and please don't let the week get by you without joining in on our challenge!  You have until thursday, May 21 to get your card entered.  And to see tons of inspiration you've got to visit our blog JUST US GIRLS!
Thanks for spending a little time here and I thank the new people who are following me as well as my previous friends! I appreciate it so much!!
