SHOPPING OUR STASH #337 - Getting Sentimental

Hello and happy Tuesday crafty peeps!
This week at
we challenge you to make your sentiment the focal point
of your project.
Here's the card I made:

 and the finished inside:

I used another panel I created a while back using Magenta Nuance powder dyes.
I die cut the word birthday 4 times, stacked and glued. 'Happiest' and
'wishes' were stamped in VersaMark and embossed in white EP.
I matted the panel with black card stock, then added some sequins,
because, shiny!

Now it's your turn to create something using your sentiment as the main focus.
We'd love to see it, so please link up at Shopping Our Stash so we 
can admire your work! Need more ideas? Simply check out the
blogs of my teammies and while there, leave some love!
