Just Us Girls #436 - Trend Week

Hi everyone!  I'm the hostess for this week's Just Us Girls Trend Challenge.  I've chosen black and white stripes.  This seems to be very trendy lately and I love to use them!
I was off the first week of April for spring break and was organizing my "recent" stamp purchases (recent being a relative term...for instance, this one was purchased in the summer at a stamp show!).  Let's just say it's one that has never been used that I came upon in my stash.  Anyway, I figured it would be fun to use with the black and white stripes.  I stamped, die cut, and copic colored the bee.  I added shimmer to it also.  I prepared the main panel with the b&w stripes and the yellow strip.  These were die cut with a wonky stitches die.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed in white and the bee was mounted with dimensional tape to a stitched circle.  I stamped the little trail and added yellow crystals.  I'm loving these crystals!  I purchased all the colors from Pretty Pink Posh, so you'll be seeing a lot of them scattered on my future cards!  ;-)
You can see more from our JUGs design team and our April guest on the JUGs blog.
