It's TREND WEEK over at Just Us Girls

What TREND  have we over at JUGS ?
It is Sue T's turn to host and she has picked a
fabulous Trend for us all to play with called 'OMBRE'
which means to use the
same colours throughout one colour family.
I recently bought a retired stamp set -
 Feeling Sentimental by Stampin' Up
  and am still enjoying all the variety of cards
you can create with it.
 I thought the penny farthing bicycle would be a great choice
for this type of challenge and also
 because it makes a great male card.
These are the products I used on my card.
Brown & Cream card stock
Tim Holtz Speckle Stencil on the background
(a little hard to see)
Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Vintage Photo & Antique Linen
Sentiment from Stamp It
Variegated Lines Stamp - Prima Marketing
Mounting squares on image.
There you have it for this week
a clean and simple card and love the ombre effect I got.
Don't forget to pop over and check the other
JUGHEADS cards for more fabulous inspiration
and then enter your card for a chance to be
Hope to see yours there.
Thanks for stopping by
