Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Hello Sunshine


Hello, I am here today with the next challenge at Just Us Girls. Sue is our hostess and she wants us to use recycled items on our card and or project. Nearly every piece of my card is made from recycled cardboard…EXCEPT the watercolored paper that I inked up with some Oxide Ink to make the water. I do love the crisp whit card-front. I love some of the texture that cardboard adds to the design. The Palm fronds looks wonderful in real life.

Over at Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge they have a challenge going on that is called Hello sunshine which is where my inspiration for my card began.

Card Details: MFT dies and Verve greeting. Some Oxide ink, water, and colored pencil was used as well. Pop dots for dimension.

Come check out all the creative ways the JUGS Design Team tackled this week’s challenge and then join us!

Take care, Nanc’
