✹✹ a little sparkle ✹✹



Sequins...I Love Sequins.

paper:  dear lizzy 5th & frolic, pink paislee color wash  stamps:  neat & tangled merry and bright ink:  zing white embossing powder other:  neat & tangled pixie dust sequin mix, melissa frances glass glitter, paper accents glassine envelope.

This card uses the new Neat and Tangled Pixie Dust Sequin Mix.  Isn't it a fun combo?


The sentiment is from a Christmas set by Neat & Tangled



...but seriously, you can so use this set for any occasion!

I feel like I haven't played along with Retro Sketches in forever!



I used Scor-tape to adhere the Melissa Frances glass glitter that I've been hoarding.  I bought 3 jars of the pretty stuff at one of the scrapbooking conventions.  Um, I may now remember why I haven't used the stuff...it's glitter mania here.  Okay, so it's technically always glitter mania....once you've used glitter it's always swirling around your workspace but the glass glitter, oy.

  7. Beautiful! Perfect take on the sketch and gorgeous results! I agree with you on the sentiment, it's so versatile but then again so many of N&T's are. I've got this sequin package in my cart already too ;) just waiting on some sets to be restocked then I'm hitting the PayPal button! ;)
