Make-a-Card Monday: SSS October Kit Club Cards - Take Two

Oops. I guess I didn't meet the card kit's full potential because looking at it this week, all I kept thinking was I can do more with what's left. :) So here is more.

I am loving these sequins. Didn't think I was a sequin-user until I was given the opportunity to use them. I used Versamark ink and Stampin' Up embossing powder for my sentiment. I entered this card into the following challenges:

Freshly Made Sketch #110
Chocolate, Coffee, and Cards #51 - Bugs and Little Critters
Divas by Design - Use Some Orange

I love using vellum with these papers. It creates a perfect place to add my text without covering up the papers. Again, I used the Versamark and Stampin' Up embossing powder. I entered this card into the following challenges:

With the time change, this card missed the good light. I will try and add some better pictures when the light comes in tomorrow. :)

And again, with the sequins! I also used some twill ribbon that wasn't in the kit (I think that's the only item though besides ink...) I stamped this image with Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Night of Navy Stampin' Up inks. I entered this card into the following challenges: 

Avenue 613 #44 - Anything Goes/No Optional Twist

This one isn't much better as we woke to a dark, cloudy, 30% chance of rain day. I hate using the flash but it shows the colors a little better. Sigh.

Here's a look at the contents of the kit if you missed it. :)
