JUST US GIRLS #323 - Trend Week

Hello and good morning crafty peeps! Lisa is your hostess for Trend Week at JUST US GIRLS, and she's picked sequins as your prompt. Here's what I came up with:

 and the inside:

I cut a triangle from some scrap card stock and wrapped green twine around it for my wonky Christmas tree. Then I went to town and added a bunch of sequins. It's hard to see but I added a couple layers of white card stock behind it to serve as snow covered hills. Of course, in hindsight, I should have just did the entire center in white. Sigh. (insert sad trombone sound here). LOL! 

Anywhooo, you know you have a gazillion sequins. Now's the time to put them to good use! Just link up at Just Us Girls so we can admire your projects! While there, please check out what my teammies came up with to inspire you and leave them some bloggy love. 

This will be our last challenge of the year, as we decided we all deserved a break to spend with our loved ones this holiday season. We'll be back next year with all new challenges, and two Guest Designers for January! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
