JUGs 8 Color Challenge

I just love the colors for the challenge this week over at Just Us Girls, but I was having a bit of trouble on the execution. Did you ever run into that trouble? You know what you want to do, and every time you think you have completed your card, you step back and decide it needs something. I had to improvise on my colors of ink but I think I got close. We were to use Really Rust, Pumpkin Pie, and Bashful Blue. I had the Really Rust and used Tangerine Tango and a blue of unknown origin. I created my background and sentiment using stamps from Gina K.'s Holiday Hospitality on a weathered wood dp. My main image is from Canadian Maple Collections. The deer is colored with a waterbrush and ink.

By adding Liquid Applique, I made 3D snow puffs for texture. My sentiment is on a Fancy Tags from Nestabilities. I added some punched snowflakes and glittery brads as accents. I did highlights with diamond Stickles. My card will be a "Thanks for all you do" card.

Have a wonderful week my friends!

glad it finally came together for you! I was going to combine the JUGS colors and Card Patterns sketch but the circles placement wasn't doing it for me. So, I'll just do the JUGS one (hopefully!)

Well Mary Anne it came together rather nicely!
I like it very much! Especially your 3-d snow puffs. It gives your card that little something extra!
