#771 – Sequin Party

…well not exactly..

That’s the the new topping at the new challenge at Seize the Birthday – Sequins!

Seize The Birthday - The Toppings

Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes

And here’s what I made –


I first stamped those cute lil animals from Pink Fresh Main Playful Animal Friends 2 in black ink, trimmed the panel. I then stringed the sequins, which I got from various sources, using a pale gold string, knotted the two ends of the string and taped it behind the panel. I then kept the panel aside.


I then prepared the pink background using WPlus9 Background Builders Knit. I used two shades of pink, swiping the ink pad across the stamp, instead of pouncing it, to get this look. I trimmed this panel too, and adhered it to the card base. The two stripes below the critter panel are washi tapes, which are adhered together and foam mounted on the card base. The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold and Party stamp set.
