Just Us Girls Color Inspiration

 
Before I get to my card today, I must say how my heart is so very heavy for the families who lost children and loved one in yesterday's tragedy in Connecticut.  It is simply so hard to understand how the lives of innocent children and adults could be taken.   May God bless the families of those were lost and all who are in need of His prayers.

On a much lighter note, it is time for another Just Us Girls Challenges.  Lisa is hooking us up with a gorgeous color palette this week.  If you are tired of all of the reds and greens for Christmas, this week's Just Us Girls challenge will be right up your alley!  The color inspiration is white, pink and green.  Pink and green is one of my all time favorite color combos so I loved make this card!  I added a few more elements than normal to my CAS style, but have to say that I am really happy with the end result.
What about you?  How do the colors inspire you?  Christmas?  Thank you?  Birthday card?  We'd love to have you come play along with us at Just Us Girls!

  4. Terribly sad day yesterday. Went home and hugged my boys-rather squished them I think. Your card is beautiful, especially with the snowflake as the focal point.

    On a much happier note - this card is my all time favorite - beautiful.

  9. oh, Lynn! This is total eye candy! love the banners, pearls, and all the sweet little details. Is it too early to call next year's Christmas card? :) My heart is also saddened by what happened. We were called into the staff room at lunch and told about it. I watched a little of it on t.v. last night just to get some details than had to turn it off. So so sad.

  18. I almost didn't think this was your card at first. But you worked those few extra elements like a pro! I love this! I going to stare at it for a while longer now, and try to learn a thing or two about CAS layering. I never feel like I get it right, but this is perfection.
