JUGS # 72 Color Challenge

Good Morning Ladies!
 This weeks challenge is being hosted by moi over at Just Us Girls and it is a color challenge.  I've chosen the colors light aqua, melon berry and kraft.  You can use any papers as long as they are close what i've said is just a guide to get the creative juices flowing.  Alot of times I've never heard of some of the color names and just go with a visual from the teams samples. 

I have some awesome news to share with everyone...we at Just Us Girls have chosen a new team member to fill the spot that was left when  Alicia stepped down from the team in January.  Not that I know her personally so to speak but in blog land she is one very talented and fun lovin' gal so without further ado let me introduce to you  Elise Durenberger.  Soooo if you get a chance stop by her blog and give her a warm welcome!

Now on to my card! 

Supplies- PTI-stamp set-Along for the Ride, PTI-Cardstock-cream,kraft and melon berry, Creative Memories-aqua paper, Waltzing Mouse-stamp set-Faux Fun Circles, MTME-stamp set-Just for You, Glossy Accents, Stampin' Up-scallop punch, Kaiser-pearls.
