Oh, Happy Day!

This was such a little fun card.  The base card was Baked brown sugar with a layer of so saffron then Tangerine Tango which was embossed with the Arrows Textured embossing folder.  I put a little strip of Retro Fresh DSP - where of course I got all the color combo for the card-  The Oh happy day was stamped with versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder and diecut  with the starburst  framelit.
The little starburst was stamped with pool party first then diecut and mounted with dimensionals.  I glued some gold sequins using the Multipurpose Liquid glue but I recommend that you be shy with the glue and only use a little and leave the center blank otherwise the glue seeps through the center hole and can cloud the sequin even when it dries clear.  Tie a free loop of gold baker's twine and use a glue dot to secure it.
Actually a part of this card was an accident- a happy one though-  I wanted to use pool party marker to color the center and found it was a bit too dark a contrast. So I tried tangerine tango but that was too dark too so I tried Soft sky then pumpkin pie and then I realized  I liked the alternating colors more than the single color.  It does look better in person though with the sparkles here and there.

Try your color combos - I thought I would try white embossing on melon mambo CS for a girl's birthday card.....  Have Fun!
