Just Us Girls285 GD

Saturday, March 21, 2015

For some reason this week at work dragged on forever.  So thank goodness that Saturday is here and I can relax a bit.  I do have to pop in to work on Sunday for a software upgrade but that shouldn't take much time at all.

But for now it's time to share my latest card for Just Us Girls.  This is my third week joining them as a Guest Designer and this week the challenge is to design a project that is black and white and another color of your choosing.  Fun!



Whenever I see a challenge like this I want the third color to be something bright.  I'm particularly fond of how Melon Mambo looks when paired with black and white so I went with that.  I'm also playing along with the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch.


My coffee stains take the place of the circles in the sketch and I went quite literal with the butterfly.  Although I think that an all black butterfly is a little unusual I really like how it contributes to the bold color scheme.

Well that's it for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  And please stop by Just Us Girls and check out the cards from the designers.  I hope you can join us!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Java Spills (Stamping Bella); Live, Love, Laugh & Be Happy (My Creative Time); Textures 2 (Florileges Design)
Paper:  White (Spectrum Noir); Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Vellum (SU)
Ink:  Melon Mambo (SU); Onyx Black (Versafine)
Accessories:  Cheviot Butterfly die, Delaney Butterfly die (Poppystamps); enamel dot (My Mind's Eye); washi tape

Love your wonderful design! The melon mambo really brings this card to life....beautiful color. Love the strip of black with the writing on it too.

That Melon Mambo really does the black and white justice. Such a great pop of color. That's about the nicest butterfly I've seen lately too. This would be a great girl graduation card. Just wonderful. Bev
