Just Us Girls #402 - Color Week

Dear Ones~
It's Color Week over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Nancy has chosen PINK, DARK PINK and BLUE. What fun colors to work with.  As always with color challenges, you are to use ONLY the three chosen colors as well as any neutrals that you need.  Neutrals are white, ivory, kraft, black, brown or gray.

Here's my card:

This is not my best effort. I think it lacks something, but I can't figure out what. Anyway, it is what it is. The dies are from Tim Holtz called Wild Flowers. The set comes with a bunch of dies and they are really fun. The little dots are some acrylic paint, applied with a stylus. Works pretty good.

Here are the Ingredients:
Recollections Rose Petal 110 lb Card Stock
GKD White Card Stock
Stash Dark Pink Card Stock
PTI Noted: A2 Scalloped Die
MFT Die-namics Scalloped Rectangle Die
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
DCWV Pocket Blossoms Patterned Paper 
Tim Holtz Wild Flowers Dies
SU Balloon Pop Up Thinlits for Bow

And remember, if you win Chic of the Week in any of our June challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of August!!   Good luck, and I hope to see you there.
