Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - Sequins: with love

This month's challenge over at Papertrey Ink is to use sequins in projects.

I had a lot of fun making cards with sequins and actually mailed off an Easter card with them but didn't have a chance to photograph it!  Sequins add a little interest and texture to a card and I am loving them!  I used to always use them on one of my holiday card designs - a red sequin worked perfectly for Rudolph's nose! :)
I finally bought the notched flower dies - at first I thought I didn't need them but then decided they would be a good way to use up some patterned paper.  I took some Amy Tangerine paper I had and cut the flowers, edging them with the Vintage Tea dye ink.
I added some foam tape (I bought a big roll at the dollar store that has been serving me well) to the layers and some gold sequins on top for the centre.  A sentiment from Mini Blooms stamped in Vintage Cream ink completed the card.

Have you used any sequins lately?  What are your favourite colours?

Very pretty! I'll have to borrow your idea to use the notched flower dies on my patterned paper.
