DSCN2313Hahaha, big flat shiny disks is more like it! But I still think it looks pretty cute, what do you think? I also got my idea for this card from Ardyth who is a guest designer over on the Muse Challenge blog this week. This is her card,

muse10_ardythI LOVE LOVE LOVE Ardyth’s design aesthetic. All of her cards are CAS masterpieces. I’ve been a fan of hers for a long time now. 🙂 I was definitely inspired by the circles and the layout of the card. 🙂

    Fabulous card. I love the papers and colours you used, the flat disks are fantastic.

  9. What a pretty card. I saw the PTI hop this week and couldn’t participate because I don’t have sequins either. We might be the only two left in the card making world. But I think your substitutions are perfect and add a nice element to your card. Great work.

  15. Love the bold sequins against the subtle colours of the stamping, Lauren … I also have so few sequins … probably about as many as I’d count on one hand … you’ve used them beautifully here! Anita 🙂
