Naki and Nina's Double Dare Challenge

Hello! Hello! It's time for a new Double Dare Challenge with my dear friend, Naki.

Here's how it works: For each challenge, Naki and I blindly pick something that we want to work with (a color scheme, tool, sketch, technique, inspiration, whatever!) Then we combine our picks to make a Double Dare Challenge! Here are our picks for this challenge:

Naki's pick for this challenge was to some Glimmer Paper
My pick was to add sequins

Here are the DEEtails:

I was a little nervous about this card being a little too sparkly, but I decided to embrace it and add even more shine. I used some Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum on some Crisp Cantaloupe Cardstock as a backdrop to some Silver Glimmer Paper chevron stripes. Then I stamped the pretty sentiment from the Hostess set, Hello There onto some white cardstock. I embossed it in silver and punched a circle. I layered my sentiment onto a die cut doily (can you tell I'm loving these doilies!?), then sprinkled on some Crisp Cantaloupe sequins.

Paper: Crisp Cantaloupe Cardstock, Neenah Solar White 80# Cardstock, Silver Fancy Foil Vellum, Silver Glimmer Paper
Stamps: Hello There
Ink: VersaMark
Embellishments: In Color Sequin Assortment, Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder
Tools: Awesome Borders Die Set One (Your Next Stamp), Doily Details Dies Collection (Papertrey Ink), heat tool, Stampin' Dimmensionals

Now let's all hop over to Naki's blog to see what she's made this week. And if you'd like to play along with us, just create something sparkly using Glimmer Paper and sequins and link up in the comments below.
