Gold Card

This card's design was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #133. I had recently bought a bag of various sequins, so when I saw this sketch, I thought I would sort out some of the gold-colored ones to go with this frame. I adhered the gold frame to the 5X7 inch card with glue tape and then used micro glue dots for the various sequins and sparkles. I used the plastic sheet from a stamp set by Gina Marie Stamps and cut the verse out to layer across my sparkly stuff. I'm disappointed that my clear foam adhesive shows up so distinctly, but I'm not sure what else to use that would pop up my sentiment without showing through the clear plastic. I really wanted to use a clear background for the sentiment so the gold sequins would all show through.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
