Just Us Girls #407 - Color Week

Dear Ones~
This week is COLOR WEEK over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Sue has chosen RED, YELLOW and BLUE. What great colors! So much fun to use the primaries. 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:
 Here I was inspired by some coneflowers that France Martin had made with the Stampin' Up Daisy Punch. You can watch her video HERE. I thought they were so clever. The background is just an embossing folder by Stampin' Up and I punched 3 butterflies in the different colors with a little Martha Stewart punch and layered them together. The stems are from a die set by Stampin' Up called Bouquet Bunch. I white heat embossed the vertical greeting from GKD.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
Recollections Red, Yellow and Blue 110# Card Stock
SU Petal Burst Embossing Folder
SU Bouquet Bunch Framelits for Stems
SU Daily Punch
Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch
GKD Mountain Wilderness Stamp for Greeting
Stash Ribbon and Enamel Dots

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