Just For Fun Fridays Color Challenge

There are some exciting things happening with Just For Fun® this week. First, we would like to announce and welcome a new designer to the team . . . Kat Tucker! Kat is so talented and her work is so inspiring . . . . I can't wait to see what she designs for Just For Fun®.

Another thing we are excited about is the launch of the new Just For Fun® Blog! You'll be able to find albums for all the designers on the right side where you can view all their designs in one place. You'll want to check out the new Designer page where you can read more about your favorite designers and get to know them better.

Saving the best for last . . . . we are announcing a new weekly color challenege . . . Just For Fun® Fridays. Each Friday there will be a new color challenge posted on the Just For Fun® Blog and samples will be posted on each Designer's blog. We are inviting you to play along with us and want to see your work! There will be a Mr. Linky at the end of each Friday's post for you to link to your own card.

This week the team was challenged to use Pink, Green and Brown here are the links to all the designers and their projects:

So here is my card using Pink, Green and Brown. I started with a brown panel and used white Stazon Ink and stamp the Flourish G3354, set this aside to dry. I next used green polka dotted paper and used my Marvy Giga scalloped circle punch. The flower is D3352 was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. I used the Spellbinder die "Nested Flower" medium die and layered this on to the green circle. Next I stamped To Someone Special (I do not have the stock number for this stamp, I will find it and post later) Using the flow of the saying, I cut to the outside of the words and tied a ribbon.

Everything was layered together on a folded pink card.

Stamps: Just For Fun® Flourish G3354, Daisy Flower D3352, To Someone Special
Inks: Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, White Stazon Ink
Accessories: Spellbinders die "Nested Flower", Copic Markers, Marvy giga round
scalloped punch, ribbons
