Mixed Media Card Challenge #19

If you are looking for my CASEplorations post, click here.

Hope you had yourself a merry, little Christmas and a happy, New Year! It's a time for new beginnings - both on the calendar and over at the Mixed Media Card Challenge! Did you get nice and mixed media messy last year with us? If not, why not join us this year?


January's challenge is all about "Beginnings". And the optional element is "sequins". Sounds like a great time for a New Year's card. Or a shaker. Or a baby card. Or how about a wedding card?

So meet my wedding card. I'm actually sharing a card published in Paper Crafts magazine back in November 2014. I think it fits the bill perfectly.


Just to give you another look at the yumminess of that Perfect Pearls shimmer... depending on the way the light hits it it looks different every time!


Mixed media card? Well, I'm sayin' yes. In addition to stamps and ink, I've got

TEXTURE - heat embossing on frame and sentiment (Papertrey)
DIMENSION - die cuts
TECHNIQUE - heat embossing, Perfect Pearls on Versamark BG (Impression Obsession)

See that sparkle and shine from the Perfect Pearls? I just love this technique. I did a tutorial on it for this card if you're interested.  Join us with a mixed media card for MMCC #19 won't you?


I'm joining the parties at:

SSS Wednesday Challenge. It's "Party" theme there this week!
Inkspirational #98 where it's non-Christmas
Mod Squad where the theme is Anything Goes with at least one die cut and
new to me Stamp, Ink, Paper #28 where it's also non-Christmas!
