Sparkle & Shine Challenge ONE: Sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh

I'm here today with my first submission to a challenge that is not an A Muse Studio challenge.  What encouraged me to enter was the idea of using sequins.  I'm really loving using sequins on my pretty!!  Secondly, this is the very first challenge on the Sparkle & Shine Challenge Blog.  And finally, it's a challenge sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh.  The winner wins a $25 gift certificate to use at the PPP Store.
The inspiration for this challenge is in the following S&S Challenge Badge:
Here's my submission:
Not only is this my first non-a|s challenge submission and the first S&S challenge....but, it's also my first shaker card.
The stamps I used are Denami Froggy, a|s Essential Sentiments and a|s Calendar Fun.
I used a|s Papaya ink on the sentiment and a|s Grass for the clovers and Froggy.  I colored Froggy with Copic G20 Wax White.
The base of the card is a|s Papaya cardstock.

I used one of the Spellbinders Circle Nesties to cut out the circle for the shaker.

I wish I had some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to use, but the only sequins I have on hand is from A Muse Studio - lime sequins for this challenge.  Hopefully (crossing my fingers), I can win some PPP sequins with this challenge. :)
Hope you'll celebrate and join in on the fun at the Sparkle & Shine Challenge Blog.  The details of the challenge can be found HERE.
