Trend Watch

It's week #3 of Wplus9's 4th Birthday Celebration, and this week we're to make something that showcases a current trend.  I combined 3 trends in my card: the use of stencils and embossing pastes, vellum, and sequins.

Trend Watch

I started by tinting my modeling paste with bundled sage distress reinker, and spreading some across this Studio Calico Intertwined Circles stencil.  While that was drying I cut a vellum tag, and white embossed my sentiment.  I also stamped these Blanket-Stitched Blooms using bundled sage, spun sugar, and tumbled glass distress inks, cut them out, and centered each with a tiny blue sequin.  I added Cupcake Doodle Twine to my vellum tag and attached the flowers, then added  pink, clear, and aqua sequins before popping it above my card base.  

Wplus9 is giving away a very generous $100 gift certificate to a random winner of each week's challenge - hope to see you there!  Thanks for visiting me today!
