Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - Sequins: Birthday wishes

Blog-hop-logo
This month's challenge over at Papertrey Ink is to use sequins in projects.
The-Challenge
  March-blog-hop-inspiration


I took out the fun graphic set Lovely Layers and stamped three times - twice with Fresh Merlot ink and once with Birch, a nice kraft shade.  I added gold sequins to the deep red medallions and a black one to the kraft coloured one. 
Then I added a sentiment from the Irresistible Ikat set - I bought that one almost as much for the cool font combo as for the images! :)
I love the fact that sequins are relatively flat so they make for easily mailable cards and since I send a lot of cards, mailability is pretty important!

So, have you made any cards with sequins lately?  How do you use them?

Supplies:
Paper: Staples 110lb white
Stamps: PTI Lovely Layers, Irresistible Ikat
Ink: Fresh Merlot, Kraft; Memento Espresso Truffle
Misc: gold and black sequins, Glossy Accents

I agree - sequins are a great alternative for giving a little "bling" to a design, but still mailable. Looks great!
