The Sequins Made Me Do It!!

Hello.  Welcome.  Whilst on my travels I visited Poundland and found some huge bags of sequins.  For some reason I agonised over mixes of brown, blue, red or orange and purple.  They were £1!!!  Why didn't I take one of each???  One of those beyond me moments!!  I'll definitely be going back, cos this orange and purple mix is rather cool and inspired me go unseasonable 'weeny.  

Yeah, thine eyes deceiveth you not!  Tis a shaker!!  I used Poppystamps Batty Triptych and some Cheery Lynn word dies with black and orange card.  That sequin mix is perfect and cos it was a big bag I added a generous spoonful to each of the three windows.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
