Make it Monday #199 - Confetti Garlands

Good morning friends.  This week at Papertrey Inks Make it Monday challenge, Betsy shows us a fun way to add a confetti garland to our cards. 


I've been seeing a lot of the Bokeh backgrounds done lately and wanted to try it out, so that was my starting point for this card.  I used the Tag Sale #5 die for my tags, the Sparkle & Shine Sequin Die for my confetti, and the sentiment is from Big Birthday Wishes.  Except for the "1" that is...that is from a dollar store set I bought years ago and has come in so handy when making number cards! :0)  My inks and cardstock are Raspberry Fizz, Bermuda Bay, and Whisper White pigment ink for the Bokeh background. 

You can see Betsy's fun and bright card, her video, and all the other great entries all right here .

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!  I get to go out for lunch and shopping with my beautiful granddaughter, her mommy, and one of my other daughters today, plus the sun is shinning, so it IS going to be a wonderful day for me!! :0)

  5. I would like to follow your blog, but I've never used goggle+ for blogs. It might be a silly question, but how does that work? Do I go to a list somewhere or does it notify my in an email? Thanks for your helpl

  6. Marcia, I am with you when it comes to technical things! I am learning as I go. Thanks for your help, it got me to play around a little with the Blogger feed and I figured out there is an add button that brought me to a screen to type in your blog info and now I can follow! Gotta love the blind leading the blind, eventually we will get there!
