Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge

Hello, every one! I am joining in the Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop today! =) And here is the challenge for the blog hop.


It's "Sequins" and I thought I would give it a try since I also fell in love with this crafty trend. =) This card is also my homework for Day 3 of the Pattern Play Online Card Class that I am taking. Okay, I know that I am really slow at turning in my homework, but better late than never, right? =)


Day 3 of the class was talking about how to use those hard to use and bold patterns you have in your stash. I made the mistake of using the same paper as THE Kristina Werner (I think hers is the 12x12 version), I almost changed things up when I realized it, but this was the only paper that I was happy with in my 6x6 stash. For those of you that have seen Kristina's card knew that hers is infinitely better (naturally), but hey, I gave it a try! =)


I die cut the piece of patterned paper from Crate Paper's Paper Heart 6x6 paper pad using PTI's Beautiful Beads Die, then reconstructed the patterned back on my card base. The sentiment is from Everyday Photo Finishers set and is stamped on an coordinating die-cut cut from Photo Finish Strips Die Collection. A few melon sequins were added to some of the flower centers and I added a bit of feathers for a little extra fun. =)

That's all I have for now. Go here to see all the entries for this fun blog hop!


Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!

how effective! i love the look of this and the little feathers are gorgeous :)

Amy Johnson said...

I'm really happy that sequins are making a comeback. I have a ton of old sequins in my stash that I never used. They are so inexpensive and remain 'flat' for mailing, unlike a lot of other embellishments. Love your card! The feathers are fabulous.
