Just Us Girls #281 - Color Week

Just take a look at these lovely colors and I wonder what you see.  I saw Navy, Beige and Silver, so I made a card using  those three colors.  This is a plain and simple card for me, specially after the last several posts. 

In this card, I used a base of GKD, In the Navy card stock, then a layering weight of White.  After die cutting the two areas, I placed in some GKD design paper from Berries and Vines.  Tiddly Inks stamp set called For the Birds was stamped with silver embossing powder and heat set.  Then colored with Copic markers.   Next, to fill in some white space, some Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Cobalt Blue and silver, of course!
You can see the silver embossing in this view.



I have been trying to finish the inside of the cards that I do so that I only need to stamp a sentiment or write in something appropriate.  Aren't these little birds so cute?
Thanks so much for stopping by, The weather this week looks wonderful here and it will be our last week in the sunshine, so we are making the most of it.  I need to bring back some to last me for the month of March back home.  Silly me, I wish I could.

Oh, I keep forgetting to mention that I have had a Pinterst button on my blog for a long time.  All you need to do is chick on it and then the images will come up and you can choose the one that you want and pin it to your board.  Have fun pinning!

Thanks for your comments, they are loved.
