For my last card  of this month's hop, I wanted to play with some sequins.  I scattered them about my card with some in my barren branches, some on my sentiment and some drifting down below.  My branches with stamped with a gray and then stamped again, generation fashion, to achieve a lighter color.  Finally, I stamped one sentiment below my branches and one on an embossed oval that I popped up on my card base.  When I sat back and looked at my card, the sequins took on a snowflake quality that I really liked.  I hope you do too!

Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to move on to Sue!!

Hi Toni! I'm sorry I haven't been by to hop sooner, but I wanted to let you know that I've checked out all your hop projects and love your work!! And I just noticed you live in Sedro Woolley...I live in Port Orchard, on the Peninsula! It's a small world!
So first off, let me say your coloring is awesome!! The card you made with the New year's set is so cute! I love that you drew in a table so that the items weren't just floating. I love the stamp added to the calendar set too! Your tiger card is gorgeous! I love the folded back corner and I love that you named him! Love love love the ducks card and how you used the sentiment!!! The white embossing on the green is really striking too!
Your Out on the Town card is brilliant! I would have NEVER thought of making the image into a pattern, but it's perfect...that exactly what those ladies remind me of!! The Chill in the Air card is beautiful!! That was my favorite set of the release and I just love your interpretation of it!!
