Just a 'touch' of colour for JUGS #285 Challenge

It's again COLOUR WEEK at Just us Girls
and our Hostess Nancy has picked a Super One with
just 2 colours and we get to pick the 3rd.
How fabulous is that?
 So many colours running through our heads and
what colour will you choose!
Well mine was easy. I have this gorgeous stamp
from Repeat Impressions - Spring Blossoms 1320M
 that I knew would work perfectly for this one
by stamping it in black and highlighting
part of it with the beautiful yellow of the daffodil
which was inked with Stampin' Up Yo Yo Yellow.
A pretty simple card with a bit of layering basic coloured cs
popping the cut out daffodil which I added Crystal Effects for shine
and paper piercing I got a great result.
The sentiment is from Gina K Designs which was cut out with
Just Rite Antique Tags and partly tucked underneath.
Hop over to our Just us Girls Blog HERE
and check out what the other Designers
 and our Guest - Deb have made for your inspiration.
You could be our Guest in May.
See you there!
I am going to enter this in the current challenge over at
Time Out Challenge for their Challenge #27 which is
CAS with the optional twist of
Black White and a Splash of Colour.
