Just Us Girls Saturday Challenge

Welcome to the 19th Just Us Girls challenge! This week our wonderful Tracey is our hostess and she has a fantastic sketch challenge for us.

This is a fun one with the circles. For this I used my plain and scalloped circle nesties. I also used this sketch for the color challenge at Stamp TV this week which were to use sage green, yellow, black and white.

Here is what I came up with:

Here is a close up:

I used the butterfly from the Gina K set called Take Flight and the sentiment from the set called Wishes & Dreams. Check out that little bird on the patterned paper isn't he cute? I just thought it would be great in that circle as if he is looking up at the butterfly. The "sage" colored pattern paper comes from a DCWV pack and the yellow is I believe Daisy Bucket. I used Gina K pure luxury black cardstock that came in my Organize It Stamp TV kit. I added little faux pearls to the middle of the butterfly and the upper right corner of the card.

Be sure to swing by the Just Us Girls blog for inspiration from the design team and swing by their own blogs:
