What is our TREND at Just Us Girls this week?

Nancy is our Hostess this week at
Just Us Girls and I love playing with her choice
 to use STENCILS on our project
for this weeks challenge. 

I started my card with iridescent gold card stock
for my base and as my backing for my stencil.
This was inked up with gold paint and left to dry.
I like the simplicity of this stencil -  by the way
it was made by a friend.
The leaves were cut from Leafy Swirls
by Fancy That with a gold embossed sheet of card stock
I found in my stash.
My butterfly is cut from a Spellbinders Butterfly Die
from iridescent mauve card stock.
I added a gold pearl to the cnetre
and 3 more to the rounded corner.
Finished off with my sentiment
inked in VersaColor Gold
from Inspired by Stamping.
Pop on over to Our Blog and check out
what we have in store for you there.
Hope to see your entry for this super challenge.

Going round in 'CIRCLES'

I certainly was going around in circles making something
I was happy with for our new Challenge over at
Kim is our Hostess and she would like to see
I didn't have any dies big enough so decided to find
something big enough to hand cut.
I found suitable card stock and cut out two - scoring the back
to attach to the front.
I tried cutting a few doily dies with my Cuttlebug but
they didn't want to cut properly so decided to
use one from my stash which I inked with
Tim Holtz Antique Linen.
I then attached DP from a Spellbinder Circle die
and a cut from Spellbinders Lotus Pendant.
My sentiment is from LOTV and framed with
Spellbinders Lacey Circles.
Ribbon is from Kassaz and inked to match the doily.
Added a Sparklet and then finishing off with
a variety of flowers from my stash with a touch
of Stardust Stickles. A tiny butterfly was added to the side
with a tiny gemstone.
PS - my first attempt went in the bin so don't be
discouraged and challenge yourself like I did.
It is a good feeling when you have persevered
and you are happy with your finished card.
Hope over Here to see what the Talented Design Team
have created. You won't be disappointed.
Looking forward to seeing your Circular Card soon.
