Sequin Shaker Blog Hop with Dynamic Duo farewell

This is my second Sequin Shaker today!!!




Yep!  It's fun!  I was pretty convinced that I enjoyed sequin shakers when I posted my first card earlier today for the Sequin Shaker Blog Hop sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh and now I am totally convinced. You'll be seeing more from me!

I had planned to make a more masculine card.  In her Sequin Shaker Video Tutorial, Paulina showed a card using the Pretty Pink Posh Nature Embellishment Kit including the wood stars - it was so cute - and I have the kit.  

But I took a few minutes to catch up on some blog posts from yesterday and learned that Dynamic Duos is shutting down after this 100th challenge.  I had the honor of being on their very first design team starting in May of 2012.  I immediately changed gears with this card and made a card in farewell to Dynamic Duos - I have loved your challenges and will miss you!


Sequin Shaker Love Close


The sequins are flat sequins from Pretty Pink Posh in marshmallow, lemon meringue and aquamarine, along with some tiny 4mm cupped sparkling clear sequins.  The ribbon is also from Pretty Pink Posh - it's the yellow chevron twill ribbon and is wonderfully soft!

The card uses the current wanna sketch from Lisa at dahlhouse designs.  Her sketches are wonderfully simple and fresh.

Kim this is such a well put together card, I love it(does that make sense... I think I mean perfectly balanced, perfect colour combos and perfect texture.. maybe that it explains it a little better lol)!
