avery elle challenge #14 - sequins

When I was in high school, my friends and I pulled a "prank" where we cut out a bunch of paper snowflakes, wrote inspiring, positive messages on them and then taped them to every locker in the school.  We didn't sign our names, just spread some good cheer anonymously.  This card I made reminds of the well wishes and heart behind that prank.  A simple, no-need-for-an-occasion, card to say hello.

I'm entering this into the Avery Elle Challenge, where we have to use sequins in our project.

Funny thing is I had every intention on making this a masculine card.  I first choose the colors for the chevrons, die cut and glued them on.  Then I lost control...added hearts, a sparkly sentiment, and then the sequins.  Even though the sequins are navy and metal/grey to match the masculine chevrons, I think this just shows how I have absolutely no self-control.  Haha!

Thanks for stopping by.
