Hello crafty friends and welcome! It's Trend Week at JUST US GIRLS! Lisa is your hostess and she's picked a trend that has no intention of going out of style anytime soon: SEQUINS! Here's my take on this fun challenge:
I have a grand niece and nephew who are twins, and they have their 4th birthday coming up later this month. What better way to celebrate than with a shaker card for each of them with a cute hippo on it!
here's the inside:
I made them pretty much the same, except for the colors, the type font I used to print the front sentiments, and just a couple things added for individuality. Sean's card has a googly eye on the hippo, and on Samantha's card, I added a few rhinestones. Of course, the shaker parts are bunches of sequins in various colors to correspond with the designer paper I used.
I hope you find some time to play along with us this week at Just Us Girls! For more inspiration, please visit the blogs of my teammates, and our Guest Designer, Kathy Schweinfurth, and leave them some bloggy lovin!
Just a reminder, if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our September challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of November! Good luck and have fun crafting! Thanks for visiting!
