Here's my card for the Stampede. Did I go a little nutty with the sequins? Why yes. Yes, I did. Indeed, I did! I might've been silently giggling in delight because I absolutely love the look of sequins, hence why we created the Confetti stamp set... but sometimes I want some dimensions too. And these just fit the bill perfectly because you don't have to worry about them falling off... ever!


Because I applied glitter on the sequins, it's hard to tell from the photo but they are delicious looking in real life. I rarely use the word delicious to describe paper products, but if there was ever a time for me to indulge in word play, this is it!

I also used the crane from Origami and sentiments are from Origami and True Friend. That's my favorite sentiment from the set -- I think it really hits a home run with the recipient. :)


READY TO STAMPEDE? The next stop is our guest designer this month, the wonderful and beautiful Miss Kathy Racoosin!

Here's the full Stampede list:
