Simon Says: Happy Birthday!

Happy 9th Birthday Simon Says Stamp!  I love your products and can't wait for more!

I wanted to participate in the Wednesday Challenge on the Simon Says Stamp Blog, primarily because it's birthday season in the family, but also to celebrate one of my favourite online crafting stores.  Nothing like a little motivation to complete some projects, right?

I had mermaids on the brain again, so I decided to use those rather than using products I wasn't quite feeling.  I also wanted to attempt a shaker card, and as a result I have a few learnings from the process.

Overall, my card turned out not quite what I envisioned, but not bad!  This mermaid was throwing me for a loop due to it's dimensions, but again, not bad for my first attempt.  A key learning about using sequins:  2 layers of foam tape is best.  I used one layer and the sequins have trouble moving plus they can make marks on the top layer if you squish your card in your fingers (noted for next time!).

Products used in this card:  Honey Bee Stamps, Simon Says Stamp card stock and white embossing powder, MFT Stamps stitched circle die, a mix of Pretty Pink Posh and Neat & Tangled sequins, copic markers.  Sentiment by WPlus9 (I think...).
