Merry Monday #117 {Sequins}

Hello again bloggers!  Even though it is now just after midnight and therefore Sunday, I am back to share one more Christmas creation with you for this week's Merry Monday challenge, suggested by Deanne:


Although this is an ornament and not a card, I hope they will accept it into the challenge anyway!  I had some flower pieces left over from this card so I used them on this.  The shape is from the 2011 Heirloom Ornament Nestablities set...my favorite!  I printed out 2 digi papers in tones of purple, cut them into 1" strips and pieced them next to each other on a scrap of  cardstock.  Then I ran them thru my Cuttlebug with the Vine Pattern embossing folder from Darice.  While it still lay in the folder, I brayered some Star Dust Stickles over the embossed areas.  IRL, it's very pretty and subtle.  Then for that extra bit of glam and bling, I added some sequins here and there.  I inked the edges with Dusty Concord & voila, another ornament completed!  The other side is finished using the same papers in the same way, but without the glitter or anything stuck to it.

The current Merry Monday challenge is nearing its end, so please get on over there and have a look at all the fabulous samples from the DT and all the other entries!   Maybe it will inspire you to make your own sequined creation!  As usual, this will go into Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra as well.  Thanks for stopping by, and take care!

ETA:  Also adding this to Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge too!
