Confetti!

I have to admit--confetti is really not my thing. However, Danielle's PTI MIM projects were really cute & I hate to miss those challenges. The only cover plate I own is the hexagons, so I covered it with scraps (strips) of 5 different colored papers so I could just run it through my Big Shot once. The outside rows have small pieces & I cut the hexagons in half.  I used Danielle's technique of picking them up with tape, adding a few more as needed.  My card is made with the 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangles. I've been wanting to do a strip of 
glitter using Score Tape & thought it'd be perfect for this little card--so I did 2!  The sentiment is from PTI Boutique Borders Birthday & is stamped in Memento Gray Flannel--just right for this type of card. Finished off with a few white sequins. Never hurts to try something even if you're not sure you'll like it.  Turns out, I'm really happy with this fun, little card!
The breeder called & said all the puppies passed their physicals, so now we just have to choose the one meant to come home with us!
Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.

  11. Greta, I think your card is total fun and I really like the size of your confetti!! I noticed after my email, if I had remembered reading your card that you still needed help with the home button (tab). What is it we forget first? hugs~ and thanks again for your sweet card and brads too!
