Papertrey Ink Blog Hop | Sequins!

I love this month's Papertrey Ink challenge... sequins! I purchased a lot of sequins several years ago and they have been sitting in a box, waiting to be used. I still have hundreds (thousands?) left, but the five I used on this card make me happy:


 (Supplies - Stamps: (Papertrey Ink) The Sweet Life, Background Basics: Herringbone, Bountiful Banners. (Stampin' Up!) Hearts a Flutter. Ink: (Stampin' Up!) Blushing Bride. (PTI) Autumn Rose, Scarlet Jewel, Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse, Ripe Avocado, Smokey Shadow. Cardstock: (Wplus9) Ballet Slippers. (PTI) White. Patterned Paper: (PTI) Autumn Rose Patterns Pack. Ribbon: (Stampin' Up!) White satin ribbon. Dies: (PTI) The Sweet Life. (Stampin' Up!) Hearts a Flutter. Other: sequins.)

The Sweet Life is a gorgeous set... I can't believe I waited this long to get it! I love the layered look with the 3 step stamping. 

I am also entering this card in this week's Retro Sketches Challenge:



Thanks for stopping by!

Great job with the sketch and love your color choices. Every time I see Sweet Life used I tell myself I need to splurge and get it off my wish list. Beautifully done!
