Project 2: Cupcakes & Carousel

Today I am sharing Project 2 from the Stampin' Sister's Retreat.  I can't believe that this was only a week ago.  It feels like it came and went so fast!  It was so much fun and I have so many great projects to show!

I completely overlooked this kit!  I never even gave it a second thought.  The circus theme was not really my thing until this weekend when we got to play with this kit.  It is adorable!  Here's a little tip: use glue dots for your sequins!  I love the finetip glue, but glue dots were awesome for the sequins!  

Featured Item: Cupcake & Carousel Embellishment Kit

The card base is Bermuda Bay with layers of So Saffron and Cupcakes & Carousels DSP Stack
We added a piece of the bakers twine from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit
Attach 2 pieces of Pool Party cardstock and add your sequins to it.
Cut a Bermuda Bay oval using Layering Ovals and a Very Vanilla oval from the Stitched Shapes
Stamp "Happy Birthday" from Rose Wonder on the stitched oval using Bermuda Bay ink.
Attach your ovals to each other and then to your card using dimensionals.
