Muse #88

Hi Everyone,

it has been a while that I have played at the Muse challenge - just not enough time.....I would love to play in every challenge, but that is impossible. But my talented friend Vicki Dutcher had made such a great card (you'll see it below) - I had to play along....


I bought those beautiful sequin dies from MFT a while ago and now they have their debut - I thought they are just perfect for this. The largest "sequin" I made with a punch. I used gold metallic paper.


The sentiment is by STAMPlorations Sentiment Builders: Celebrate 
, heat embossed on vellum. Added some fine gold thread for extra interest.
Here is Vicki's beauty:



Perhaps it stretching it too much, but I also thought it would fir this weeks Freshly Made Sketches sketch - I just made the central panel larger....

Dramatic, eyecatching and so fabulous, Cornelia ... your cascade of sequins is gorgeous! I'm thinking you also used the teeny tiny centre circles ... such attention to detail ... they're the perfect touch! Anita :)
