Sparkle & Shine

Hey everyone! I have some fun news to share with you. Today is the first challenge of the brand new Sparkle & Shine challenge blog. I am super excited because I have been asked to join their design team. This challenge is all about adding sequins to your projects, thus the name.

For our first challenge we were issued a photo to inspire us...since this is the first of March what could be better than this for some inspiration?!

Here's the card I came up with...

I started with a piece of watercolor paper and painted the background with Mowed Lawn and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks. Then I used a heart shape die to cut out the four hearts that made up the four leaf clover.

I backed the opening with 6mm Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. These sequins are so pretty. They are clear, but when the light hits them just right they have a mirror effect.

Make sure you hop on over the Sparkle & Shine blog to link up your own projects and to see what the rest of the design team had made. Just click HERE to go straight to the site.

Come back on March 15th when we will have the second challenge for this month, this one will be a sketch challenge!
