Designer Challenge "Bling"

Hello! It's time for another Designer Challenge over at MyCreativeTime. Emma's challenge for us is to use bling. YAY! So for my bling, I used sequins. LOTS of sequins. I used Pretty Pretty Pink and Just Peachy sequins from NeatAndTangled. :) I started by cutting out the window with the XL Label Die. Then I traced it on another sheet of cardstock so I'd know where to put my sequins. Then my favorite part, gluing the sequins. Soooo relaxing to me. 
I stamped and white heat embossed the greeting from the More of My Favorite Sayings set on vellum. I finished it off with some punched Martha Stewart butterflies. I super love the white on white look. 

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more creations and play along!

p.s. On this day one year ago, I quit smoking. I made my mind up to do it, and I did it. Proving that truly, anything is possible if you put your mind to it. :)

  7. I'll be off to the store tomorrow to find some sequins so I can try this amazing technique. I also love the white on white look. Now if only I can gather some patience to get all the little sequins on my project...it will be a miracle. Kind of like your own little miracle of kicking the smoking habit. Congrats on that!

  8. Congratulations on your one year anniversary...a huge accomplishment :D Your card is beautiful with your sequins technique. The white on white is a great look and shows off the bling. I love that you use vellum so you can still see the colors. I bet these sequins cards sparkle like crazy when moving.
