JUGS Challenge #47

Don't you just love these bright colors? This was the wonderful choice of the DT at Just Us Girls. I knew when I saw this challenge, I just had to join in the fun!
I used an A2 card base and scrap of lime, checked paper that was trying to hide from me. My circles and scallop trim are SU! items. I used the large, hot pink, polka dot Prima as my focal point. After adding some felt leaves, I remembered these crocheted flowers I had won, and added a gem brad to the center of the open work one to make it work. The sentiment is from an old DOTS set. Throw on a few gems and some lime organza ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and there you have my entry. I hope you likee!

It's time for another cup of strong coffee! Care to join me?
