Just Us Girls Challenge #51

Well, the week is finally over and we are rolling into the weekend with an awesome color challenge over at Just Us GirlsKathryn is our hostess this weekend and she kept the palette simple and open for a little interpretation.  Red, Green, Black...and Neutral...your choice of hues!!
This is the card I came up with for the challenge:
I kept this one pretty clean and simple because I ran short on time this week, but I like how it turned out.  Thought this would be prtty just sitting on someone's desk as a motivational piece :]  My green is from Couture Cardstock and it's called Thistlestock.  Kind of a nice, sage colored green...I thought it looked pretty against the black base.  I incorporated red by sponging my flower petals (Spellbinders, Blossom die) with SU! Riding Hood Red ink.  My neutral is the vellum butterfly (MS punch) :]
I stamped the circular, leafy pattern under the flower using a MTME Killer Curves Fancy Frames stamp and SU! Mellow Moss ink.  The sentiment is from the MTME All A Flutter Sentiments set.  Leaves and button are from my stash.  I trimmed the base with the same Spellbinders dies that I used on my main panels (I have very limited internet connectivity on my weekend trip in GA, so I can't look up the die I used or link my stamps...sorry!)

Okay, that said, I'll point you to my sidebar to look at the rest of the team's creations (if this post even publishes tonight!  Crossing my fingers :)  Be sure to check out our guest designer, Lynn Mangan also!  Her projects are fab!!  I'll try to come back and link everything after the internet comes back up or I get home on Sunday evening.  In the meantime, you can find Lynn's blog link on the JUGS blog.  This is also where you can link your projects when you join us for the color challenge!!  Can't wait to see what you come up with :]

Hope you're having a fantastic weekend!
