Confetti Garland

Oh what FUN this was to make! 

My card will be entered into the Challenge at Papertrey Ink, Confetti Garland.

To make my garland I used 2 different dies, the square is from Uncorked and the sun/star burst is from City Scene, both from PTI.  I chose this fabulous new paper I picked up for a song....half price at $3.49, from DCWV, Coral Couture.  It is full of gorgeous hues and prints! After cutting out my shapes and poking holes in them, I found some coordinating large sequins, and then strung them all on a little bit of gold cording.  I also affixed them to the card base as Betsy did in her wonderful VIDEO, using two brads.  I hand cut three flag banners in pretty prints and then stamped Celebrate from the Uncorked stamp set. 
A simple card to make....a FUN card to make! 
Weather Update:
As of right now we still have power and heat, yay!  There are drifts of snow on my back deck of 3 feet, while in the side yard only looks like a foot and a half.....that's all.  lol  Winds are howling  and snow is swirling, could keep up all day and into night.   Spoke to my Mom who lives in town and she is having her meals delivered but was concerned about getting to her exercise class at 11.  hahaha  All is well.....knock on wood!
Thanks for stopping by.....think I will just craft through the storm.....perfect!


  1. Wow I love this! Those colors are fabulous and how lucky for you to find them half price. Love it when that happens! You brought this card together perfectly!

  2. I love your card! The patterned paper colours are terrific! Thinking of you with all this snow, and hoping this storm will end soon!

  3. Love all the colors in this beauty. Glad you still have power. With all that wind it sounds like a great day to craft.

  4. Great colors and layout. To me, those are perfect masculine colors. Stay warm and cozy in your craft room. Hope you don't loose power....that might make crafting a little difficult lol

  5. Fabulous colors and paper! You are right it was a great steal. Love how you put them all together. This was rather fun to do, I think. Love those days when you don't have to go out and everyone you know is safe, and all you have to do is craft.

  6. I love, love, love the wonderful colors! Such a happy, warm card. Love the fun garland too! Enjoy your crafting days!

  7. LOVE those papers, and what a great price. Those colors are just awesome, as is your card. Great confetti, and love those banners too. This is a card I just like to look at......super nice!
