I had a lot of fun pairing up 
Pink Peonies, Fresh Mint and Onyx Sequins
with the "Classique: Pretty" Collection!

For both of my cards I chose to use the Authentic Life Cards
as my starting points:
For this card, I drew a large S onto the card and then stitched on the 
Pink Peonies sequins with a needle and thread.  I love to hand-sew, so this little project was very soothing for me.  You can also add the little seed beads to the centers of the sequins while stitching.

I layered two of the stickers together from the Details Sticker Sheet and added 'girl' using the letters from the same sticker sheet.  Two black flowers from Petaloo and this card is done!

When working with something like sequins, I look for an area that can easily be highlighted with them.  On this journal card, I followed the lacy border design.  I adhered the Fresh Mint and Onyx Sequins with a micro adhesive dot and then added a small adhesive pearl to the center of each.

Finally, I layered the three stickers together with foam adhesive and added a lace bow at the top.
A stick pin by Maya Road completes the card.

I love making pretty, feminine cards...they're even more fun to dress up with sequins and pearls!
Enjoy this week's inspiration with Pretty Pink Posh!

Hello, friends!  Today I'm sharing my latest project with Authentique's "Classique: Pretty" collection and Pretty Pink Posh sequins. 

I found this beautiful ornate frame at a local store.  It's actually plastic and was painted a dark yellow so I spray painted it this lovely teal.

I used one of my favorite Julie Nutting doll stamps to piece together this little beauty.  I highlighted her skin and hair with Copic markers. I added Pretty Pink Posh pink peonies sequins to her dress and shoes.

The tags and Life cards in this collection are so fabulous.  I love the great sayings that just make you smile.  I added these fun tags attached with twine and lovely onyx Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

I framed one of my favorite Life Cards, "Happy Girls are the Prettiest" with striped patterned paper and collection stickers.  I added marshmellow Pretty Pink Posh sequins to the framed art.  Finally, I created this pretty paper bow to finish my project.  This was such a fun project to create!
