Just Us Girls #301 - Trend Week

Hi everyone!  I'm very excited today because my favorite band of all time, The Rolling Stones, are in my hometown Buffalo, NY!  My best friend Maria and my cousin Renee are going to the concert with me!  The band has been getting excellent reviews on this tour!  They've been visiting around town today.  They were at a local restaurant yesterday and today they were at the Darwin Martin house, which was built by Frank Lloyd Wright.  I wish I could have run into them somewhere!  It's on my bucket list to meet them...I doubt that will ever happen!  I'll take pics of the concert and let you know how the concert was.
 
Well, back to why I'm really posting today!  The Just Us Girls challenge this week is a trend challenge. I'm the hostess and I've seen lots of gold being used on cards, so that's the challenge...use gold. 
 
Please excuse my photo.  The light I use above my light tent is out and hubby hasn't changed the bulb yet.  I took about 13 photos all over my house and outside too and his was the best one. 
I purchased these Paper Smooches dies the other day and thought they'd look cool in gold.  I have a set of gold flatware that I use with my china for holidays.  That was my inspiration.  I die cut them from gold glitter paper, added some gold washi tape, some sequins, and a gold sentiment.  The main panel is popped up with fun foam. 

You can see more from the design team and our guest on these blogs.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Just love all that gold you added to your card Lisa. Beautiful. Super challenge. Hope you and your gal friends have a ball at the concert. I am a Beatle fan and would love to have seen them live.
