JUGS 3 - Color Challenge!

Happy Saturday!

Hello all~

It's been a crazy few days here-- I've been sick, and I hurt my neck...it was just NOT my week.  One last time, I'd like to thank all those that came out to support me for the contest over at Splitcoaststampers.  Patty seems like a real great gal - and I'm happy for her, she put a lot of time and effort into her submission - so a big congratulations to her!!

Also -- a big congrats to Broni Holcombe, our second "Chic of the Week"!  I loved your creation!!

This week's JUGS challenge is a color challenge hosted by Dana Gustafson.  Here's our palette:

I kept things simple -- I needed a card for a friend who got some unexpected news this week.  Nothing bad, just a little overwhelming maybe.  I thought this sentiment from Scattered Showers was perfect.

Dawn's sets always have such cute and different sentiments -- love it.  I really need to get the 'additions' set.  I added some sparkle to the circles on the umbrella -- I took a closer shot, so you could see a little better...

The circles on the bottom mimic the circles on the umbrella -- they are from Polka Dot Basics I from PTI.

We have a busy day ahead of us, so I won't be checking in until much later -- gives you all enough time to create something FABULOUS for me to look at tonight ;).

Hope you all get to play along with us this week!  Be sure to use the keyword JUGS3 on your uploads, and link you creation to the Mr. Linky on the challenge blog.

The other girls on the team have cooked up something fabulous as well -- be sure to show them some love!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Supplies - all Papertrey Ink, unless otherwise noted:

Stamps: Rain or Shine, Polka Dot Basics I

This is cute, Tracey! Love the sweet umbrella with the sparkly circles! You really did a great job showing the contrast in colors. That ribbon is YUMMY. I have two of the PTI Pure Poppy ribbons and you just convinced me I need a third! UGH. LOL

Hope your friend cheers up and/or overcomes whatever is stressing her right now. I'm sure your card will help...that's very sweet of you.

Have a great day. Hope you are feeling better soon and your neck is healing :( Take care, girly!

So cute Tracey! What a great card to let a friend know you are there for her. I love the stamped polka dot panel with the great umbrella from Dawn's stamp set. That is also one of my favorite sentiments...such a comforting statement.

I love your rain inspired take on the color's this week!
