52CCT: June Embellishment Challenge

Sequins are the newest "thing" to hit the crafting world.  Which kinda cracks me up.  I had a bunch of them at one point and time and either gave them away or threw them away so that I didn't have them gumming up my embellies drawer, lol!  Luckily, I found a huge bag of them at a garage sale recently for just fifty cents.  Hooray!  And we'd like you to use some sequins this week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown...along with pearls!

Here's some inspiration~

My creation~

Inside~

I've used sequins from my stash, liquid pearls by Ranger, patterned paper by Recollections, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.  I not only got the sequins at that garage sale, I also picked up two stamp sets--the snowman one I used earlier this month for $2 and this stamp set for just $3!

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my card! I hope you'll join us this week and that you'll also take a bit of time to leave some love with the other gals on this amazing DT! Merry stamping, friends! :)

I LOVE this Mynn! What a timely bargain you found (and at a great price). The different colors are fun and I love that darling Santa image. Hugs D

Wonderful Santa stamp Mynn - which has resulted in a wonderful card! Love that the panel extends above the top of the card and all that bling makes the card extra festive and fabulous! I love the sequins around the sentiment on the inside too - another fab and festive touch!
Hope you're enjoying your weekend! {{{{hugs}}}} Ruth x

NO WAY - you got this stamp set at a garage sale for only $3!?!?! SO lucky! I've always admired this Santa image (and the star-shaped Santa in that same set) but shied away from it because I thought it would be too much of a bear to color. You've done an amazing job with it! I really like how you have the differently-colored shimmery sparklies falling around Santa. Excellent job, Mynn!
