So after chickening out making the kind of card I would not normally begin to try ( see below post on the various types of cards I received from swaps that are perfect examples of what I can't or wouldnt do - lol ) , I thought to make a card using as much of Q&Co products as I possibly can ( never did that before ) & to use white cardstock ( which I rarely do & a non textured one at that ) - even though I thought I had a bit of various types of Q&Co products , it was frustrating still to say the least of not having the right colour or size brad or porduct that I would have preferred to use . & to move away from the usual square cards that I love too -a rectangular card made out of 8x8' size cardstock.
I also wanted to try doing a sentiment in a curve versus the usual straight lines - & as I wasnt about to go to any LSS' here this weekend - I was frustrated that I didnt have the right font ( a thicker , curvier , chunkier one could do the job better perhaps ) .
As the Fab sequin flowers were the main focus I tried to continue the plastic feel for effect & added an icicle type embellie from Spotlight ! I just dont have any Q&CO brads in that colour anymore to do that dotty effect ! lol
