Moms that love sequins

I have lots of Mother's Day cards that I made to sell. Hopefully they are flying out the doors of the stores that I sell my cards at. 

Sequins seem to be all the rage these days. I happen to love them and have a stash from my old dancing days. I had to buy these brown ones but did so with pleasure. 

The sentiment stamp by Studio G is heat embossed with white embossing powder by Stampendous and Versa Mark ink. Then I inked the paper with distress inks and sprayed it with Perfect Pearls and water to get a water colors effect. I lined the back of the sentiment with sequins and adhered it to a piece of patterned paper by K and Co.

After adhering the patterned paper piece to my card base I added the Oriental Trading Co flowers. To make the center of the flower I used more sequins and small pearls by Want 2 Scrap in the centers. By the way Want 2 Scrap is having a 50% off sale right now thru Sunday, May 12th. Don't miss your chance to get some great bling to add to your crafting project at half the price.

So that's my card for today. Thanks for stopping by.
