Just Us Girls #85 Color Challenge...somewhere over the rainbow!


Hey blog friends!  It's a color challenge over at Just Us Girls and this week it's my honor to hostess.  I picked one of my favorite color combos....RAINBOW!  That's right, we're challenging you to make something using RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE AND PURPLE (neutrals are allowed too).

I used this happy color combo to create a thank you card for my daughter's 1st grade teacher.

All this color couldn't be more bright and energetic....just like our first graders and their treasured teacher, Ms Funk!  I created the sun rays by stamping with Practicing Creativity's You're Dandy set and I capped the ruffling rainbow ribbon with hand drawn clouds on lettering paper from Making Memories.

The text was created in Word and printed on a tag and stamp set by Papertrey Ink, Fillable Frame 4.

Ready for some more rainbow colored goodness to get your happy on?!??  Check out our Featured Designer for May, Clare Buswell and the Just Us Girls team!

Put on your rainbow colored thinking cap and wow us with your color creativity!  Can't wait to see you over at Just Us Girls!  Thanks so much for coming by!Photobucket

I love your card! Thanks for your comment - I don't think my style (cutesy) is what the JUGS team likes, so I probably won't play anymore, but this was a fun challenge, I really enjoyed making sure I had all the colors of the rainbow included in my project and I loved the way it came out. I appreciate that you took the time to visit and comment. Thanks! xo
