Birthday Sequins



Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 


This time around the "Toppings" options is "Sequins". However, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!


My card features one of my favorite florals, the Kind Soul stamp set from W plus9. I had the panel heat embossed, and took it with me while on a short three-day vacation to Rhode Island. All I needed to pack was my card front, a few paintbrushes, and my super portable Watercolor Dot Palette from Daniel Smith. When I got home, I did a partial die cut of the front, mounted it on a card base, and added a smattering of sequins. Easy-peasy! 


I'm also playing along with the ladies at the Just Us Girls challenge where it's Anything Goes. I think this is the first time I'm playing along with this challenge, though I'm not 100% sure... lol! At Stamp Ink Paper it's Card Maker's Choice, and it's no secret that my favorite stamps are anything floral! 


I love how perfectly our new Seize the Birthday watermark coincides with my creation! 


Stamp Sets: Kind Soul (W plus9), Birthday Greetings (Altenew)
Card Stock: Always Artichoke (Stampin' Up), Smooth Watercolor (Bristol)
Ink Pads: Versamark, Forever Green (Hero Arts), Watercolor Dot Palette (Daniel Smith)
Tools: Big Shot, Heat Tool, Kind Soul Dies (W plus9)
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Moonshine Sequins (Simon Says Stamp)


I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)
