RS72 & DD61 and Finally Some Sequins


Happy Thursday everyone!  I wanted to play with two challenges before the week was out, and I managed to squeak in some stamping time yesterday!  The Dynamic Duos challenge was Pink Pirouette and Sahara Sand, and the RetroSketches sketch was by my sweet friend Lisa:

Rarely do I put 3D items on my cards, as they make it difficult to mail, but I threw caution to the wind and pulled out a flower from my Artisan Embellishments kit from the last mini, along with some other sweet goodies:

LeAnne Pugliese RS72 DD61

I sponged the white doily with Very Vanilla ink to match better, and grunged up the card base with some Gorgeous Grunge (love that name!) and stamped the sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts in Smoky Gray….it works great on the Sahara Sand …not too dark and not too light!  Here’s a closeup of the elements:


And finally……SEQUINS!!!  Tada!  I kept forgetting a had a little stash, and these worked perfectly for the colors:


So cute!  I loved making this, even though at first the sketch intimidated me!  Glad I persevered!
