Sequins at the end of the Sequence


   The six month term for the current Little Tangles design team has come to an end.  This is our final post and challenge, but it is not goodbye!  I eagerly await the inspiration by the new design team.  Neat and Tangled remains one of my two favorite stamp companies, so I know I will continue to support them.  In fact it was Neat and Tangled that started the sequins trend, did you know that?  For my card I used a few sequins from the "Winter Wonderland" pack and the current fortnightly challenge is: 

SEQUINS!

(Winter Wonderland sequins pack)   

My sentiment is from this new fab set called
 "You + Me":
This could be my new favorite stamp set.  LOVE.


For my card I used punches and card stock by Stampin' Up!  I liked the little blue circles in the designer paper (BasicGrey "Eskimo Kisses" 6x6).  The blue card stock was a little bolder (see scalloped oval compared to the hexagon die cut piece (a PTI die).  To tone down the blue hexagon die cut piece, I also cut a scrap piece of vellum with the hexagon die and glued together with glossy accents (which I also used to adhere the sequins.)  Then I glued both hexagon die cut layers to the BasicGrey patterned paper.  The paper was a little wavy for my perfectionist taste, so I ran the entire piece through my Xyron.  This also enabled my to easily adhere my ends of the scrap ribbon I used on the sentiment oval as well as adhering the entire panel to my base card.

Please stop by Little Tangles to say goodbye, play along in the SEQUINS challenge, and welcome the new team in two weeks!

Happy Thursday!

You've worked magic with N&T stamps over your DT term, and sparked much inspiration, especially for me! I know it was one of your cards that first introduced me to N&T, and for that: thank you! New doors will continue to open for you; your talent ensures this happening! Fabulous finale card!!
