Sparkle and Shine Challenge One

This is the very first Sparkle and Shine challenge.  It is sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh and it is not necessary to use her sequins, but it is encouraged. 
I made my card several days ago and really just didn't like it.  So I let it sit there unglued.  I sometime do this, especially if I am not happy with what I have done.  Then an idea came to me and I was able to add a die and complete the card.

Here is what I was inspired to do from this photo.

Here is what I used to make this card. 
GKD card stock in Fresh Asparagus and White
Vellum and swiss dot embossing folder.
Lil Inker stitched rectangle die
Sequins from my stash 9white) and Pretty Pink Posh  (green)
Simon Says Die Balloon Bouquet
DCWV foiled card stock in gold
Rub on Sentiment from my stash. 

Thanks for stopping by and please enjoy.  I love your comments.
