Just Us Girls #304 - Trend Week

Hello!  This week over at Just Us Girls we are using vellum for our Trend Week challenge.  I love vellum, but I dread using it because I never know how to hide the adhesive!  But I pushed on and I do love it!  Here's what I did with it.
 
I saw a card done by Debby Hughes on Pinterest that I pinned here and used it as my inspiration.  I die cut the leaves from cardstock and vellum and layered them together.  Before I did that, however, I spritzed the cardstock with some white spray ink.  I mounted the leaves on white cardstock, added the die cut sentiment from pattern paper, some sequins, and a twine bow.  I adhered a strip of pattern paper to the kraft cardstock base.  The main panel was adhered with fun foam.  Love the softness of the vellum!
 
I took my color inspiration from this week's Color Throwdown.
 
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our guest, Karen, on the Just Us Girls blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
