JUST US GIRLS #270 - Word Week

Good morning crafty peeps! Sue V. is our hostess this week at JUST US GIRLS, It's Word Week, and she picked one that is perfect for this time of year! And that word is:

Ooooh! Sparkle! I love sparkly things! Especially on cards, so here's what I made:

Here's the inside:

I made the background panel using a stencil and Distress Ink. I took a bit of green glitter paper, cut a curve in it and adhered on top of that. (and used the other piece on the inside! Woot!) Once I stamped the sentiment, I went back over all the swirls with diamond Stickles. Yep. SPARKLY!!

Ready to play along? Of course you are! Be sure to link up your card or project at Just Us Girls! While there, check out the gorgeous creations that my teammates, and our December guest designer, Lee Ann Barrett, have made! WOW! Also, if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our challenges in December, you will be in the running as Guest Designer for the month of February! 

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

  3. Glitter is a girl's best friend - at least mine. My favorite thing to do after I've glittered up a card is to find my boyfriend and wipe my hands down his shirt. I'm so mean! :)
