House of Cards May Challenge

This is my latest make for the Design Team of House of Cards

May Challenge: Use sequins and/or the Color Palette!

I needed to make a card for my Uncle's 80th -
 I chose to just use sequins and a different colour scheme.

The background is a piece of my faux wood paper using Peacock Feathers Distress ink, matted on black card and then layered on a square white card blank.
I stamped a Stanpin Up bottle and glasses stamp alongside
and added some sequins as bubbles.
The shaker was made using a series of die cut circles in card, foam and acetate with sequins, bottles and glasses inside.
The 80 was cut from black sparkly foam using Sizzix Curlz dies.
The banners were cut using Craftstash dies and stamped with Craftstash sentiment stamps.

Hope you will join in the Challenge!

Happy Crafting!
