Just Us Girls #325 - Trend Week

Hello friends!  This week over at Just Us Girls is Trend Week.  And Sue has challenged us to use Metals/Metallics on our cards.  Great challenge!
 
I usually create my cards on Friday nights and since we took a break over the holidays, I think I got out of my routine!  I fell asleep last night after dinner and totally forgot to make this card!  So I got up early this morning to make it!   I just got this globe die in the mail yesterday, and it was perfect for this challenge.  It was one I have been looking at for a while, so when it Reverse Confetti had their sale last week I snatched it up!  So glad I did!  I die cut it from white card stock then embossed it a couple of times with Liquid Platinum embossing powder.  I did the same with the small hearts.  I added the red heart in the globe and added a sentiment on a banner.  I've also used some much neglected pattern paper!  This is going to be my hubby's Valentine card.
 
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our January guests, Deepti and Vicki, on the JUGs blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
