Just Us Girls #60 - Color challenge

 Hello Ladies!
This week our color challenge is being hosted by Lisa and she has chosen this fun color palette.  The photo prompted me to use this stamp set from MTME called Argyle Amazement.  Even though Thanksgiving is next week I didn't want to make a Thanksgiving card and these colors did not scream Thanksgiving!  Which made me very happy! I put clear stickles in the center of each flower (looks better in person) to jazz it up a little.  I popped up the sentiment and the frame with pop-ups and stamped the frame using Very Vintage Labels no. 5 from Waltzingmouse which works perfectly with the spellbinder dies.  Please stop by the JUGS blog for more inspiration from the rest of the girls along with our November guest designer Cheryl Rowley.


How to play: You need to upload your project for this week's challenge to your online blog or public photo gallery. Leave a link that goes directly to your project in the Inlinkz form at the bottom of this post. If you upload to online galleries, please also use the keyword or tag, JUGS60. After you post to Inlinkz you can also leave a comment here.

Deadline to be considered for the weekly "Chic of the Week" is 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, November 25th. The Inlinkz form will close at that time. Our top pick "Chic of the Week" will be announced on the following Friday morning.


  1. Kathryn I LOVE your card - I almost used the exact same Argyle set for my BG as well and then changed at the last minute. Your card is simply stunning!!! Wonderfully done.

  2. Simply Stunning Kathryn.... I Love the BG you have created...I think that is one of my favorite stamps from MTME :)

  3. Awesome! I love how you picked up the pattern from the purse very cool! Nice job.

  4. Kathryn - that background is PERFECT!!!! Like Maria said, it really picks up the pattern from the purse :) What a lovely card and a great use of the challenge colors!

  5. Ohh cool! It is definitely kinda quilt-y like the tote picture. How on earth did you stamp that pattern so perfectly?
