surprise for you!

hello there!

today i have a super fun and fresh card to share that i created for the current CAS on Sunday challenge! it's all about using sequins (ok...twist my arm! lol!)!

and bonus - create a smile stamps is sponsoring the challenge!! awesome!!!

i happened to use the penguin party stamp set from create a smile for my card!

i colored the cute little image with copics and popped it up over some crumpled vellum! the vellem was then placed over some white thread onto of a handcut banner. the banner was made with a stencil and two different embossing pastes! i used gold and then clear transuscent! the clear embossing paste was mixed with peacock feathers and evergreen bough distress inks to get the color! i LOVE the mix of colors it gives! almost like a tarnished/aged metal?! 

anyway, the banner was then also popped up and then the super amazing sequins from from studio calico's color theory were added and i LOVE the added sparkle they add! 

so that's my card! be sure to play along for your chance to win some create a smile goodies! (ps - they have stencils now!!!! yes!)
