Since we are still somewhat snowed in I was able to sit down for a while and create a couple of cards.  One I will be sharing on Wednesday and one that I'm sharing right now.   This card is for the Paper Players (colors), Sunday Stamps (sketch), the Card Concept (clean and layered) and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (interactive element).  All the dies I used, as well as the stamp set are from A Jillian Vance Design.  I used the two largest hearts from the Stitched Dot Heart die set to create my shaker element that I filled with dark gray, white and fuchsia flat sequins that are also from A Jillian Vance Design.   The dark pink and light gray cardstocks are Stampin Up! Melon Mambo and Smoky Slate.  The darker gray is PTI's Weathervane and the white is also from PTI.  I one of the dies from the AJVD Sentiment Stripes die set to create the piece running across the white cardstock panel.  After die cutting the strip I adhered it to my white cardstock and then die cut the whole thing with the largest AJVD Stitched Dot rectangle.   The smaller strip was actually cut from the tag that is part of the Minnie Pearl Tag set from AJVD that I trimmed down to fit the sketch.  I adhered that strip and then stamped the sentiment from the AJVD Valentine's Day stamp set in VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne ink.  I adhered the shaker heart and then added two smaller hearts die cut from the Smoky Slate and Melon Mambo cardstock, as well as some dark pink baker's twine tied in a bow.




Hope you have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, Weathervane; SU! Melon Mambo; Stamps and dies:  A Jillian Vance Design; Ink:  VersaFine CLAIR; Sequins:  A Jillian Vance Design
