JUGS 8 - Lisa's Color Challenge

Happy Saturday to you all!

I'm so glad that I got my card done early this week, as my Shannon has suddenly come down with an illness...not sure if it's THE flu (I NEVER should have said anything the other day in my post - lol) or just some other random virus, but I hate when they don't feel well.

Lisa gave us this FABULOUS color challenge at Just Us Girls this week:



So, I looked through my paper stash, and just LOVE Papertrey's Autum Harvest papers, but one problem...no blue.  Hmmmmm....so I broke out my markers and ADDED the blue!  I think it really tied it all together, don't you??


I dusted off my Spiral Boquet set from PTI, I don't use it nearly as often as I should - I just LOVE those beautiful sentiments.

We're expecting to have a low-key weekend, thankfully.  Hoping you get to play along with the challenge - not too late to make a nice Thanksgiving card for your Thanksgiving hosts (if you are going elsewhere for dinner) :).

Here's links to the rest of the girls -- some gorgeous stuff there, don't miss it!

Oh I love your card! I have so many PTI sets that don't get enough love and this is one of them! And coloring the dp personalizes your color combo so nicely! We stampers are so creative! LOL!!! Thanks for making my colors look so fantastic!

WOW!! Beautiful card. Loved it....:) I was going to bug you to see if you could post a tutorial for the bow you have done on your card. It's just gorgeous.
