A challenge, a sketch and a colour scheme

The challenge (from CASual Fridays) - use chevrons and sequins.  This is more of a challenge to me than it may seem - I don't like sequins. I actually seriously dislike them.  I did callisthenics as a child, so I have had MUCH MORE than my fair share of sequins for one lifetime.  However, I do have a pack of mixed sequins for my nieces to craft with (from Spotlight, I think), so I pulled them out (grudgingly) and added 2 (I couldn't bring myself to add any more!)
I also followed a sketch from Retro Sketches, and a colour scheme from ColorQ.   The chevrons are from Paper Smooches, the sentiment from Hero Arts, and the inks are Hero Arts Shadow inks.





EDIT: I missed the cut-off for the Retro Sketches challenge - rats!

  7. I'm glad you pulled out your pack of sequins (I might have giggled about your disdain for them since I feel that way about other card trends). The stamping is beautiful--gorgeous colors, too. Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays!
