Just Us Girls #67 color challenge....first signs of spring



Happy saturday! Time for some color fun with Just Us Girls.  This week's gorgeous color pallette was chosen by our guest designer, Carla Suto, and is inspired by the pretty paper line by Graphic 45 called Once Upon a Springtime.  It's just so spring to me with flowers, fairies and butterflies!



Aqua, coral and green...*sigh* so pretty together!  Great choice Carla!



I made this card all about the bling and the floral. Want 2 Scrap pearls and bling were great accents to my handmade fabric flowers made from a scrap of material hanging around in my fabric stash.


Stardust stickles added a sweet dew-like accent to flowers, leaves and the DP.

I hope you can join us for this color challenge this week!  Have a great one and thanks for coming by.

The way you combine fabric & paper is fantabulous!!! Your flowers are beautiful atop Graphic 45's pretties. And I think you & Want 2 Scrap are a match made in heaven...can't think of anyone who pairs up bling & pearls as well as you! :> Happy Saturday, Dana!
