Just Us Girls #369 - Trend Week

Bobby is our hostess at Just Us Girls for our Trend Challenge this week and she has chosen the trend of Metallics!

We have with us again this week as our Guest Designer - Cecile Ribon!  Come on over to Just Us Girls to see what Cecile and the rest of the Design Team have created using Metallics.

Metallic surfaces are so hard to get a good photo of!  I started by die cutting a Vintage Violet tag and added the gold striped piece and the silver and gold tag topper, all by Reverse Confetti.  Die cut an ornament from some silver and white Metallic Foiled cardstock.  Added the foiled die cut bow and some scraps of the foiled purple as a ribbon to top off the tag.  Stamped the sentiment by Tim Holtz and layered onto some more Vintage Violet and edged the edges with s gold Sharpie marker so that it wasn't lost against the tag.  Used a swirly embossing folder on some DCWV Metallic Stack purple and then sanded it a little.  Stamped the little stars from WPlus9 in Delicata Golden Glitz.

Come and play along with us at Just Us Girls and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible for a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.
