Just Us Girls #323 - Trend Week

This time at Just Us Girls it's Trend Week.  Lisa is our hostess and she has chosen the trend of Sequins.  I've been seeing a lot of sequins in cards lately.  You can use a little or a lot.  Here's how I was inspired.

Christmas bells are so special, especially silver ones.  I was in love with this Enclosed Bell from PTI the moment I saw it.  I think a lot of other people must have loved it too, because when I went to order it it was already gone.  I finally got mine and I love it!  One of my favorite Christmas songs is Silver Bells, so this one had to be silver.  In fact it is a glittery silver thanks to some beautiful paper from DCWV called Glitzy Glitter paper.  The patterned paper is some that I happened to have in my stash.  It is from Me and My Big Ideas.  I was thrilled to find it because it has snow flakes in red, blue, green and silver.  I added a clear sequin and bead to the bell's striker and then scattered some around on the red panel.

Please visit the Just Us Girls blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team have made this week. I hope you will be inspired and play along with us.

We don't have a Guest Designer for the month of December.  The team will be taking a two week break to celebrate the holiday season with our families at the conclusion of this challenge.  If you were a Chic of the Week winner in any of our October or November challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as one of our two Guest Designers for the month of January.  Please check back with us on January 2, 2016 when our Word Week challenge will be hosted by Nancy.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
