pretty pink posh blog hop


I'm excited to participate in Pretty Pink Posh's sequin shaker blog hop.  Paulina at PPP makes shaker cards look so easy, but I seriously struggled to get everything just right.



This card is for a proud mother to give to her son who is graduating from college.  She ordered a money lei from me so that her son could wear it in his graduation ceremony.  I threw in this card with her order to send my best wishes.



With graduation and wedding season coming up, I'm thinking I'll be making quite a few of these.  Good thing I enjoy it:)

Thank you for stopping by.

Supplies:
Stamps: Mama Elephant Sunny Skies; Studio Calico Bluegrass Farm
Inks: Hero Arts (cup o joe, mint julep); Versafine (onyx black)
Dies: Kelly Purkey Twentyfourteen; Lawn Fawn Say Cheese
Other: various sequins
