Just Us Girls #374 - Color Week

Dear Ones~
This week is COLOR WEEK over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Lisa has chosen these luscious hues. As usual with color challenges, you are to use all three of the chosen colors as well as any neutrals that you need.  Neutrals are white, ivory, kraft, black, brown or gray.

Here's my Card:
Here I have used a Stampin' Up stamp and die set called Star of Light.  I dipped the edges of the navy scalloped oval in Versamark and then dusted it with the gold powder. It made a beautiful gold edge. I did the same with the ivory background paper. I also gold embossed that beautiful star, as well as the greeting on vellum.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Navy, Wild Orchid and Ivory Card Stock
SU Star of Light Stamps
SU  Starlights Thinlits Die
Spellbinders Fancy Labels 2 Die
Spellbinders Scallop Oval Die
Memento Lilac Posies Ink
Nuvo Honey Gold Glitter Drops
GKD Gold Embossing Powder

 Please visit the JUST US GIRLS blog to see the wonderful cards that our December Guest Designer Teresa and the rest of the team have made this week. And remember, if you win Chic of the Week in any of our December challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of February, 2017!!   I hope to see you there. 

Good luck, and thanks for stopping by!!
