Let's Get Trendy Sequins Challenge

I found a "new to me" blog called "Lets Get Trendy"
I now know it is a cool blog that just thanks it's readers
with 5 cool, free workshops a month..not a challenge blog....
now is that fun or what...I think so!!!
 
The workshop for the second day was/is "Sequins"
I have seen lots of sequins being used around blogland lately,
in fact my friend "Kristi" at "Kristi's Paper Creations" uses them quite often
take a peek at her blog as she does beautiful work!!
 
 
For this card I went with a bit of a vintage look and used some things from "my stash"
I knew I had sequins somewhere, and found a trim card of them....
I glued them to the wings of the Sizzix bird...
my bird looked so regal I just had to add a crown.....
I didn't add lots of layers, wanted my bird to be the focus!!
 
It is a cooler, on and off again rainy day (and I am glad)
glad, because I am exhausted from my busy week so far.....
dance recital on Sat, the graduation on Sunday, a first grade "bug" presentation on Tuesday,
a granddaughters ball game after the presentation and another ball game last night....
whew...I need a break...so today...I am in my creative room to work on a few challenges
and the UPS man came with two boxes of goodies for me to play with.....
and speaking of challenges...I have a bunch of them I enjoy listed on my blog if interested...
 
and a good piece of news, if you have Pinterest, have you noticed it now lets you
know if you have already pinned something...woowho!!!!
If you don't have Pinterest...take a peek at my boards (link above)
and one other thing...I will share my DT news with you all tomorrow...exciting for me
and there is "something" for you as well!!!
