Just Rite color challenge

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Thanks for stopping by today! Today's card is inspired by the Just Rite Challenge # 075 - Color Challenge of Aqua, Apricot, and Orange. When I saw the colors for the challenge and the design team's pretty and inspirational work, I thought of some K&Company double-sided papers that I have had for a long time. Sometimes a friend and I will buy paper pads and divide the papers. These are such papers and I do not know the name of this particular K&Company pad. These are not colors that I normally use, but I enjoyed working with the papers and colors for the challenge!
Card is 5" x 6 1/2" brown cardstock and is layered with a patterned 5" X 6 1/2" designer paper. The design is a play with one of the sketches from June 2012 PageMaps.
I know you are seeing a lot of rosettes on my projects lately but I enjoy making rosettes. The designer paper is cut 1" and scored at each 1/4". An aqua blue brad is placed in the middle and then I added the rhinestone for a bit of bling!

Cricut Cartridge: Lovely Floral - Butterfly cut 1.75". Stickles used on the butterfly for a little bling. Would you believe I could not find the appropriate size rhinestones in my stash!
Just Rite - Friendship Nested Sentiments. Yay! I received a few more stamps!
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Class Scalloped Rectangles Largest used on the mats and third largest used on the sentiment mat.
Spellbinders M-Bossabilities - Splendid Design B
Trims are from a friend! Thanks so much Charlotte. I enjoyed working with the pretty trims on the card!
Other supplies include aqua rhinestones and Versa Magic Gingerbread inking. The Sentiment mat and butterfly are pop-dotted.

Be sure to visit Just Rite challenge blog and see all the great inspiration by the design team. You have until Wednesday June 27 at 6:00 P.M. Central to enter your project!

  1. Great card, it really captures the festive mood of the photograph!

  2. Glenda, Although this is not your normal style. The card is very pretty.It does look festive. I love it....also I would like to apologize for not entering your rose challenge. I looked through my cartridges and I don't have one cartridge that has a rose on it....Lot's of tulips but no rose. Perhaps next time....Your friend, Cathy
