Celebrate good times

Hey everyone.
We are seriously watching the pennies here and I am banned from buying any craft supplies,
but I couldn't resist a few bags of  coloured sequins.
In my defence they only cost a few pounds, and they are soooo pretty!!

I really had to fight the urge to scatter them all over my Muse card.
Repeat after me... less is more... less is more...

I don't jave any zig-zag stamps or templates so, for that part of my card, I cut out some strips of grey, honeycomb dp and,
if you're a regular visitor, you'll know that I am 'florally challenged', so I replaced the bloom with stamped and die cut balloons, popped up on foam pads.

Here's my inspiration -  the MUSE challenge card from Marion

Clearly Besotted stamps and dies from the 'Make A Wish' set.
Memento inks, bahama blue, tangelo, rose bud
Pink Petticoat digi paper, honeycomb. Sequins and gems

Gotta say that I agree with you... it's not like you are 'really spending' sequins are so affordable and give you such a bang for your buck. Another great card Caroline!
