Totally Hues Challenge #3

Hi, everyone! Can you believe it's Friday? And that it's already the 4th of March?? I don't know about you, but I am SO looking forward to spring rolling on in and saying goodbye to winter! :) This year has just been flying by... Funny how when you're a child, time seems to practically stand still, but yet, when you're an adult, you can't keep up and time is looking at you through the rear-view mirror! LOL

Speaking of March... *wink* it's the first Friday of the month, which means it's time for another Totally Hues Challenge.  Yay! :) Once again, I had a blast going through all of the entries... I think one of my favorite things about going through all of the cards is seeing how differently we all interpret colors.  Some people created cards that were really bold and dramatic, while other people created cards that were very soft and delicate.  Absolutely loved it!

Here are the top picks for this week:


Julie  •  Aimes  •  Amy  •  Cristina  •  Sarah

Awesomeness, ladies!!

Here's this week's challenge...
