Papertrey Ink March 2013 Blog Hop

YIKES!  Challenge due today?!  I stumbled upon this awesome blog today and just had to participate.
 So much inspiration and cool stuff here...not to mention Papertrey Ink have some amazing stamps I would love to play with!  As I was reading through the post I realized that their latest challenge is due TONIGHT!  Their challenge is sequins!

How coincidental that I just picked up some sequins from the Michaels bargain bin yesterday.  It was fate.  I must admit...I was a little stumped on how to use these tiny bits of bling on a card but after seeing some of the submissions at this blog I was inspired.  Here's my take.

I used origami to make the dress from DCWV paper.  The background stamp is from Hero Arts.  The die cute dress form is from Tim Hotltz and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.  The inside of the card says, "a Fabulous Birthday".  I used sequins on the belt and the bling on the dress.

I was quite surprised how quickly this card came together.  It was like my hands had a mind of their own.  Must be the momentum I've had lately.  YAY!  I hope it keeps up!  Loving the creating!
I'd like to also submit this in the following other challenges:
Simon Says Stamp: Spring/Easter
A Blog Named Hero: Freestyle 
2 Sisters: Easter/Spring
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenges: Bring on Spring
Love to Create Challenge Blog: Pastel Colours
