Just Us Girls #325 TREND WEEK!

Hello and welcome to the weekend!!   The JUGS challenge this week is very Trendy and brought to us by the equally trendy, Sue!  Sue says to use Metal/Metallics on your card or project!  You know that with all your supplies you have lots of options, right!?  I sure did! But, having gone back to school this week meant going with the tried and true SILVER heated embossing powder!
Here's my card:

The card didn't turn out just as I had planned, but I think it will work for someone, sometime! I imagined this lace BG stamp from My Favorite things in gorgeous silver (Ranger Emb. powder) on light grey card stock.  But then, I'd seen some cards with Bugs on them and the sentiment you can see that I used.  I was itching to use that theme-maybe to make some Valentines??  While school was on break I did a little extra 'me' shopping and just received some Paper Smooches a well as the Taylored Expressions bugs, so you could be seeing some more of these type of cards (maybe not the lace, though).
Anyway, check out the very different and very inspirational cards on our Just Us Girls Blog-you'll love what you see!
And, please enter your project by Thursday, Jan. 14 at 9 pm ET. You could win Chic of the Week and then have a chance to be our Guest Designer in March!
If you have any questions about materials used, please ask in a comment and I'll get back to you! Promise!
Have a great day! Cheryl

I couldn't imagine what you used when I first saw this card. Love that lace pattern embossed! How cool! And I love the bug! I bought some bees from Paper Smooches while on break too. Just got them yesterday! Hope to see you soon! Maybe some snow days next week? Fingers crossed!
