Santa's Beard - Sequins Challenge at Lets Get Trendy 3

I used the Purple Pumpkin sketch as my starting point for the page and then altered it slightly to incorporate the sequins I wanted to add. My background papers are a TH Ideology page and some red coordinations paper.
Using sequins is the last of the Lets Get Trendy 3 techniques from the DT's which I found a bit challenging to say the least!  I had this photo of Abi in the bath which I love as it reminds me of the time she used to spend at our house before her sister was born -  happy times!

I framed the photo with the left over card from a sheet of  Chronology postcards by Papermania. I glued it to the photo then backed with some dots card I'd been experimenting on.  I used the rest of the card to make my strips under the photo.  The flowers are all handmade from kitchen roll and a bit of left over scrap papers.  The tag is a piece of corrugated card with a scrap sentiment stamped for a bigger project.  I wrote my journalling on the back which reads -
You loved visiting Nan's for a sleepover and a bath with bubbles was compulsory.  You were trying to make Santa's beard with the bubbles here.  So Cute!!  The washers are courtesy of my plumber who donated them to me in exchange for numerous cups of coffee.  I used a white distress ink pad to make the circles.  My torn paper is sewn together with wire.  My lettering is old die cuts and chipboard pieces which I embossed with copper and seafoam powders to blend with my page.
Thats the last of the challenges for Let's Get Trendy 3 and now I'm entering all five for an extra prize.  Wish me luck everyone and thanks for looking again folks and for any feedback.

Happy Hump Day to everyone.
