It's Saturday again and time for another Just Us Girls Challenge. This week I get to be the hostess! Check out this beautiful bedroom which is my inspiration for this week's color challenge:

So your colors this week are lovely pastels: Lavender, Yellow, Pink, Green (optional) (Gina K Designs color reference: Innocent Pink, Lovely Lavender, Lemon Drop, Creme De Menthe). Now there is a little fun twist to this week's challenge. This week we are celebrating the birthday of one of our fabulous DT members:


So the twist is to use the colors in the challenge and make a birthday card.

How to play: You need to upload your project using this week's challenge to your online blog or public photo gallery. Leave a link that goes directly to your project in our Inlinkz form at the bottom of this post. If you upload to online galleries, please also use the keyword or tag, JUGS29. After you post to Inlinkz you can come and leave a comment here.

Deadline to be considered for the weekly "Chic of the Week" will be 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, April 22. Our Inlinkz submission form will close at that time as well. Our top pick "Chic of the Week" will be announced on Friday morning following the deadline.

Here is what I came up with:

I used Unity's April Store kit of the month called: Super Sweet & Stuck on You. Awesome images as always. I picked this owl to use. I paper pieced him, added some stickles to his nose. My layout is this week's sketch at Friday Sketchers. My solids are by Gina K Designs and the pattern papers are by Memory Box. The sentiment is not Unity I had a random sentiment in my stash that I thought worked well.

Here is a close up:

Gotta love layers! LOL!

Be sure to swing on by the JUGS DT for lots of amazing inspiration!
