Flower Love You...Just Us Girls #354~Let's Hear it for the Girls, Colour Throwdown #403~Peach, Yellow, Light Pink, White

(Second post today. My Inkspirational Challenges #114~Word Prompt: Dip post is here)

Hello,

Once again, I'm delighted to be Guest Designing with the Just Us Girls team for Just Us Girls #354~Wild Card Week: Let's Hear it for the Girls.


I confess: the 'girl' theme threw me for a while, which is curious, given most of my cards 'are' girly (d-uh!), but fortunately, Colour Throwdown #403~Peach, Yellow, Light Pink & White came to the rescue: 


Peach, light pink, yellow...and flowers...in my world, that's 'girl'!  Ideas sparked...and off I went...

Last week, I shared with you my Concord and 9th Flutter die with a 'masculine' twist; this week, the companion Floral die finally makes its debut....

Here, the theme colours serve as the background...


and here, they serve as the foreground.


Hope my 'girl' cards make you smile...and I hope they create the same response in the two 'gals' I'm planning to send them to...

At this point, it's time to bid 'farewell' to my guest designing role *wipes away tears*  I've enjoyed, immensely, the opportunity to play with this incredible group of gals not once, but FIVE times!  Feeling might spoiled...and incredibly honoured!  To the Just Us Girls team:  Thank you for having me! You are all absolutely awesome!  'Bye for now...but you'll certainly be seeing me in your gallery...hugs!

Hope you'll play along! Let's hear it for the girls!!

Thank you for spending time with me today; your visit brings me joy!

You are on one heck of a creative roll pal! Two more beauties boasting soft, pretty colors! Your inked panel on the second card is stunning!

We had a VERY busy weekend of volunteering at the Ukrainian Festival this weekend (Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday) so needless to say I had 0 yard time and 0 commenting time!

Bobby said...

It has been great having you as a guest designer, Carol. You always come through with wonderful cards, including these two. The colors are so soft and pretty - not unlike the colors of my challenge a few weeks ago - and the fluttery flowers are fabulous.

Rose said...

Beautiful Carol! Both cards are just so pretty!

Greta said...

I really love that color combo & you've totally made it shine--with both cards!

Jeanne said...

Oh my, I love the colors you've chosen to ink blend. They are gorgeous! They look amazing peeking out from the die cuts. Then to see the next card...wow. Way to use up all your blending! Fabulous cards. :)
