Just Us Girls #334 - Trend Week

Dear Ones~
This is a very special post for me. I am so happy to announce that I have been invited to join the Design Team over at the Just Us Girls Challenge Blog. I am honored to work with such a wonderful group of talented gals!! I hope you will join us each week and play along.

This week is TREND WEEK. Vicki is our host, 
and she has chosen the trend shaker cards as our inspiration. 
Shaker cards are so much fun to make, and there are so many possibilities for the "shaker" bits.
I made the shaker with my handy dandy Fuse Tool, sure makes the work so much easier. I stamped and heat embossed the greeting on the inside so it shows through the shaker window.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Lovely Lavender and Ivory Card Stock
MFT Peach Bellini Card Stock
Darice Cherry Blossoms Embossing Folder
HOTP Lacey Rectangles Die
HOTP Flower Frenzy Dies
SU Butterfly Basics for Greeting
GKD Gold Embossing Powder
Beads and Sequins from my Stash

Please visit the JUST US GIRLS blog to see the wonderful cards the rest of the team, and our Guest Designer Steph Castro, have made this week.  I hope to see you there.
And remember, if you win Chic of the Week in any of our March challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of May.  Good luck, and thanks for stopping by!!
