Double D Challenge "Sequins here, sequins there..."

Good morning blogger friends!

Ahhh, it's February...the month of Love and time for another fun challenge on the Double D Challenge Blog.  With Valentine's Day just a week away,  I used this opportunity to create another lovely Valentine!

 Team Diane is hosting this challenge along with the help of Team Darlene and the theme is "Sequins"! Who doesn't love those small, shiny decorative disks? I know that I do! 

The mood board offers a range of inspiration from colors to shapes and details.  Choose one, two, three, or all four of the photos to inspire your project.  Link it up to the Double D Challenge Blog post, "Sequins" by midnight on February 18th for the chance to be our "Top Creative Winner"or one of the "Top 3" chosen by our Design Team.  You could also be the winner chosen by random draw for the awesome prize shown below.


Paper Trey Ink Sparkle & Shine Sequin Dies

Here's your mood board inspiration...


In addition to the sequins, I was inspired by the pink and silver colors...


I used basically all silver and pink on this card except for the white card base and a splash of white here and there. The three hearts are stacked with foam tape for added dimension.  I "frosted" the top of the largest heart with heart shaped sequins.  The middle heart is cut from the same silver glitter paper that I used as matting for the dotted patterned paper.  I created a mini shaker image in the center of the smallest heart by using yet a smaller one to die cut the window.  The window is made from re-purposed packaging.  I added silver, pink and a few of the heart shaped sequins behind the window.  The heart that was cut out for the window became my sentiment background.  I created a multi loop bow and added an "XO" button to the center of it.  A couple of pearl stick pins and a few scattered sequins complete the details on my card. 

And voila!!  Another fun Valentine card to add to my stash.

Thanks for stopping by to share my "Sequin" inspiration for the Double D Challenge Blog.

I think that this is the first Valentine card that I have seen with this color combo of pink and silver. It is fantastic and so gorgeous. It will not be forgotten and I will keep this in mind for a future dazzling card. See, I have learned something new already. I am so happy to be on this amazing team of crafters.
