I'm Hosting at Just Us Girls for?

Hello and Welcome.
It's Saturday's JUGS Day and it is my turn to 
Be Your Host for our Colour Week and I chose
just 2 colours - Red & Black and you have
the choice to pick a Third.
What colour will you choose?
I picked GOLD! 
I was going to do Christmas but that didn't eventuate.

I started my card by making the background
from Rose Red Brusho's and Aztec Gold PearlEx Powders
with lots of smooching and drying in between
 till I was happy with the coverage.
I then heat embossed my hibiscus flower from 49andMarket
with Stamp It Gold powder.
Added a touch of black to the centre of the flower.
This was then cut with a stitched die and
adhered to a black mat and on to metallic gold card stock.
Finished with gold pearls and die cutting my
Happy Birthday Sentiment which was heat embossed with
Ranger Black mixed with Stamp It Gold.

Pop over to Our Blog and check what our
June Guest Hannelie and the Team have created
and what third colour choice they made.
Hope you can join us this week. If so you could be our
Chic of the Week and be in the running for being
invited to be our Guest in August.

Thanks for dropping in.
Love reading your comments and will be so glad
WHEN Blogger get's notifications fixed.

Fabulous background Ina with the Brusho and gold pearl ex powder, beautiful shimmer. The gold heat embossing of the pretty flower looks great and the pop of black and gold heat embossing looks fabulous. Artsy and beautiful card x

LOVE that watercoloured background Ina! Such a gorgeous rose red colour and looks amazing with the addition of gold. Your die-cut sentiment really pops with the shine, shimmer and dimension from the heat embossing. Gorgeous card! xx
