JUST US GIRLS #373 - Trend Week

Hello and welcome crafty friends! It's Trend Week at JUST US GIRLS. Judy is your hostess, and she's picked 'jars' as your inspiration. Here's my card:

 and the inside:

I took a mason jar stamp and die and made a Christmas 'snow globe jar' shaker card. I used an ancient dimensional sticker (soooo easy!) for the sentiment. I filled it with a couple different glitter mixes and some insanely tiny clear beads.

I hope you get some time this week to play along at Just Us Girls! For more inspiration, please check out what my teammates, and our Guest Designer, Teresa Gregory, have made for your viewing pleasure! Thanks for visiting! I hope you have a fantastic day!
