This month's Papertrey blog hop challenge is to use sequins. This challenge gave me a good reason to go shopping as I didn't own any sequins. And we've got lots of April birthdays in our family, so I used this challenge to start on my birthday card.
For my first card, I was inspired by a color combo from the graphics on a commercial for Oprah's Super Soul Sunday show. The colors made me think of Funky Florals, so here's the result:
In my second card, I tried to use a color scheme to go with the iridescent sequins. I'm not in love with the final result.
Thanks for stopping by!
