JAI# 259 Just add sequins

Hello there,
well I have survived the first week of the school holidays - always a good place to end up ;) The week started with me taking my two plus one to the zoo and ended up with a day of grandparent entertainment - I wish I could say I was relaxing while they were otherwise occupied but no such luck - just too many things on my to do list!!

One thing I did get off my to do list was this week's Just Add Ink challenge. This week we have have a fun challenge from Patrice to Just Add Sequins (not just one or two but lots!!).

Here's what I came up with.

I have quite a few pink loving friends so with pinkness in mind this is what I came up with. To glam up the pink (Melon Mambo - it's rather hard to get this shade to photograph right - grrr) I added gold into the mix. I figured for a fun (pink) birthday card I couldn't go wrong with lots of dotty confetti and then using some of those as a guide adhered gold sequins over. A big sentiment and some sweet trimmings (more sequins!) finish it all off.

Hope you can join us for this fun challenge. Do check out the rest of the DT for lots of great ideas for incorporating sequins into your design.
