Just Us Girls #371 - Photo Week

Dear Ones!
This week is photo week over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Vicki has chosen this stunning photo for our inspiration.

Here's what I came up with:
As everyone knows, it's very difficult to photograph shimmer and shine, and this is very shimmery with that gorgeous purple metallic paper. The ornament is cut out of silver metallic, and the background patterned paper is very glittery.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
Recollections Purple Foil Card Stock
Recollections Silver Card Stock
Recollections Shimmer Noel Patterned Paper
Marianne Designs Christmas Bauble Die
Tim Holtz Mixed Media Die
Martha Stewart Branch Punch
Stash Ribbon

Please visit the JUST US GIRLS blog to see the wonderful cards that our November Guest Designer, Cecile, and the rest of the team have made this week. And remember, if you win Chic of the Week in any of our November challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of January, 2017!!   I hope to see you there. 

Good luck, and thanks for stopping by!!
