Pretty Pink Posh sells lovely sequins, gorgeous ribbons and variety of other fun embellishments. I use sequins on virtually every card, but I struggled with this challenge. I think it was because my sequin use is generally just a trio of sequins to highlight a sentiment or an image and to add a festive touch. For the challenge, I wanted the focus to be on the sequins and I was thinking that it needed to be more than just a trio. I wasted too many hours to admit trying to create that card.
At the end of those hours I had a light bulb moment - I was going to stick with my simple trio of sequins - but I was going to show you the card with and without the sequins. I wanted to demonstrate why I was happy with sequins. Now that I was into my comfort zone, the card came together quickly. I got up the next morning to photograph the card and had a devastating realization - there wasn't even a hint of pink on my card. Oops! I got so carried away showing off the sponsor's products, I forgot about the challenge.
I did finally get two pink cards done for the challenge, and now I am going to show you my "non-pink" demonstration of cards with and without sequins.
