Just Us Girls #80 color challenge...and happy birthday LISA!

Hey JUGs fans!  This is BIRTHDAY week at Just Us Girls!  First, our dear Elise and now, our hostess with the mostest, the lovely Lisa Kind!  Lisa picked our challenge colors this week and bonus challenges us to make it a birthday card.....well, THAT was easy since I needed a card to send to my friend! Happy Birthday Lisa!  Not only do the JUGs want to wish Lisa a very happy birthday but check out this post over at My Time Made Easy for a complete list of creative ladies who are kicking off the birthday wishes in beautiful style. 

I've been trying my hand at crepe paper streamer flowers lately and I just happened to have this pretty pale coral color!  Having fun with distressed cardboard for the leaves, music paper bordered with Nestabling pennant in silver and lots of other fun and shabby details.

Including these vintage cream colored pearls I salvaged from a piece of jewelry.  LOVE giving new life to bits and baubles.

Ready to infuse some new vigor in your color palettes?   I think you'll love playing along with Just Us Girls this week in color challenge #80!
And please also leave some love for the FABULOUS April guest designer, Teresa Kline!
