It's all about 'YOU'

Doesn't every crafter have little containers
full of all sorts of coloured sequins?
Off course you do - that's why Lisa
as our Hostess at Just Us Girls
thought it was time to use some of them
and chose SEQUINS for our Trend Week.
There are so many ways to use those little critters -
 perfect for a shaker card but not me this time.
 I could see me dropping them all over the floor.
I decided to go soft and subtle

I was given some unusual pieces of coloured paper
 which look like they were recycled and are
quite thin and didn't know how it would cut
so I tried it out using a Sizzix leaf die
and they turned out nicely.
 I then decided I needed  a touch of colour 
 behind my background so used another sheet there.
This  was stencilled with Sparkle Medium
and while wet I added some fine glitter.
My butterfly was cut from a Cheery Lynn die and
also added glitter and a pearl.
My sentiment is a new one - recently purchased
from a Win I had and is from Pink & Maine.
I must say they ink up beautifully.
To finish off my card I needed those
Sequins as part of the challenge and
also added some rhinestones.
Hope you check out Our Blog
for more blingy creations and then
get out your sequins carefully and
join us for this super challenge.
You could be our Chic of the Week and
be in the running as Our Guest in November.

I am going to enter this card in the CAS Challenge
over at STAMPloration - Details Here

Thanks for dropping in

Thinking of You.

The new Challenge over at
Crafty Cardmakers is being hosted by Marlene
and she has chosen LAYERS!
and want to see Lots of LAYERS
I think I have achieved that !
I found these sheets of die cuts in my stash
from Reddy Creative Cards (German Co)
and all I had to do was detach and layer them up
 using foam squares. Easy eh!
After completing that I attached them to a piece
of mauve paper cut from a Spellbinders die.
The card stock was stamped randomly
with a hydrangea stamp from
SU to match my focal point.
Just needed to add a sentiment from GKD which was inked
and cut out of vellum.
Hope you can pop over and check out
what the other Designers have layered
and would love to see yours Here
Thanks for dropping in so till next time
