Sequins!

Hello!

I'm slipping in at the last minute with an entry to Muse #23 where the Guest Designer is Anita (in France). I love Anita's work, and I couldn't resist playing along. This is my card.
I used PTI Round Repeats and Avery Elle Modern Leaves (sentiment) stamps. Colours are SU! Daffodil Delight, Memento Grey Flannel and Tuxedo Black. Sequins are Avery Elle.

This is Anita's card.
You can see that I pretty much took the layout and turned it on its side. I changed the colour scheme to work with the sequins that I own, because I just HAD to use sequins when CASEing this gorgeous blingy card! :-)

I have another shot of my card, to show you that my sequins really do shine.
I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.

Before I go, I'll show you a quick couple of photos I took this afternoon. All day it has been rainy and very cloudy here. At sunset, the sky was still covered in low grey clouds, but at the horizon was a small gap where the sun was shining through. The sun lit up the clouds so that they shone orange, turning everything around orange for about 15 minutes. A beautiful colourful end to a dreary day. This photo is unedited, so not showing perfectly what I saw, but it's close.
And this is my daughter turned orange while she edits her own sunset photo on her iPod.
Thanks for coming to visit me!

Your card is just fabulous. Great idea to turn it on its side, and I love how you used those sequins as flower centers.

Love those sweet little flowers and they are even sweeter with the sequins! Memento Grey Flannel is fast becoming a favourite...
