Kraft, bling & embossing - A CASual Friday's card

I managed to squeeze in a bit of crafting time today, between laundry and meeting friends for lunch.  A busy day, but very good day!

This card is going into CASual Fridays CFC100: Top 10 Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  It's their 100th challenge already (and their 2nd birthday).  AND they're celebrating...so you might want to check it out!

I chose the column in down the middle.  Kraft, bling and emboss.  Here's what I came up with.


I used kraft cardstock for my base and for the 2 panels I popped up with foam tape.  I used white embossing powder for my stamped images, then colored using my Prismacolor pencils.  Easy, but it took a while.  Then, I used a few sequins for my bling.  Yes, I finally ordered some sequins...and they arrived just yesterday.  Couldn't wait to play with them!
Thanks for taking a look today!





Supplies:
Cardstock: kraft (PTI)
Ink: versamark
Stamps: quilled elegance (PTI)
Other: light aqua, true green, green grass Prismacolor pencils, white EP (SU), crystal opaque mix sequins (Cartwrights), glossy accents (Ranger)
