Merry Monday: Sequins

I couldn't let Merry Monday's challenge go by without playing along.  The challenge is to use sequins. Scroll through my blog - I dare you to find many cards at all without a few sequins.  I often just use three sequins to highlight a sentiment or image, but for a sequin challenge, I thought I ought to use a few more.

From Our House

It's not particularly creative to plop sequins on a wreath - but I love the look of that open wreath.  It's also a really nice mix of sequins.  It's not just the photo that makes them look different - there are three shades of green and two of red, plus the golden sequins. The picture doesn't do the embossing powder justice.  In a different light, you can see that the speckles are actually golden.
