Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop

I have a card today for the Sequin Shaker Blog Hop at Pretty Pink Posh.

If you're not familiar with Pretty Pink Posh, they carry some wonderful sequins in such pretty colors.  I don't own any of them but hopefully will one day.

I made a fun graduation card today, one that I think will be good for my nephew.


There's still time to enter the challenge and be inspired by all the other projects!

Thanks for visiting!

I used translucent embossing paste for my background, stamped the sentiment onto card stock and placed it in a glassine envelope along with some sequins.

I used lots of Distress Inks on my card today, along with embossing and die cutting. I sprayed Perfect Pearls over everything to get a subtle sparkle and to let the ink colours blend together. Love the texture on the balloons from the splotches of Perfect Pearls.

I glued 6 balloon die cuts on top of one another to get a thick chipboard effect, then die cut the balloon shape from the embossed background and nestled the balloons into the recess made by the die.
