JUST US GIRLS #330 - Trend Week

Good morning and welcome! It's Trend Week at JUST US GIRLS! Ina is your hostess this week and she's picked a trend that is still going strong: TAGS! She is challenging you to add a tag to your card or project. Here is my card:

 And the inside:

I was in need of a sympathy card, and so this came about. The tags are actually a frame die, but I trimmed one side then rounded the corners. (because I like to do things the hard way.) Speaking of the hard way, the sentiment is also masked a few times. The stamp says 'sorry for your loss' all on one line. I wanted it to be two lines plus add the word so. I added Diamond Stickles to the wings, tail feathers and flower after I had everything adhered in place. 

Ready to play along? Sure you are! Just link up your card or project at Just Us Girls so we can admire it! While there, please leave some bloggy love for my teammates and our Guest Designer, Pamellia. Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a great day!
