Just Us Girls: Color Challenge

I'm entering a challenge this week at Just Us Girls.  Aren't these colors yummy!  They remind me of the ocean, the beach, the sand, the waves.  My favorite place in the whole world is standing in the sand on a beach, looking out over the water.  It's so calm and soothing.  Here's the card I made.

I needed a thank you card for my best friend and blue is her favorite color.  It was a no brainer to use the color palette from the challenge.  The card is 5" x 5".  I used kraft paper for my base and matted the Pool Party printed paper with Chocolate Chip.  The sentiment is stamped and then embossed with Pool Party embossing powder.  I tucked a double layer of funky scallops down the side and added a dimensional flower sticker.

I know my friend will love the card and the pretty colors.  Have a great day!


  1. Pretty, pretty! This color challenge certainly spoke to me too! Miss you!!!!

  2. Beautiful! I love the combo of patterned papers and that layered scalloped border. Great job with the color challenge. Thanks for joining us at JUGS!

  3. One of my favorite places too….I live 7 minutes from the beach and don't frequent it as much as I should. So glad you linked this amazing card up with us over at JUGS~ Have a great day!
