Mixy-Matchy Style Challenge!

Supplies:  pp/cardstock butterfly/alphabet letters - 
Vintage Bliss - Simple Stories, pink cardstock - Papermania, 
Tape strips - kneehighs & bowties by Basic Grey, Labels 14 
die - spellbinders, Enamel dot - basic grey, versamark ink, 
embossing powder - ranger industries, paper scraps - AC, acetate 
sheet, white sequins - Gutermann, alphabet stamps - Heidi Swapp, 
machine stitching and 6x6 card blank - Craftworks.

When I saw that Cath had posted a new style challenge on Moxie Fab World I knew I would have to make a card!.

My SIL recently got engaged so whilst the card above isn't the one I made for her and her fiancé! (forgot to take a photo - oops!) - it has me thinking about making some Engagement cards!.
I also have been enjoying making shaker cards recently - so it's a mish-mash of mixy matchy patterns and styles!.  I stamped the sentiment on a die cut piece of cardstock with versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I machine stitched to the patterned paper.  I then secured the acetate to the base layer and card base with free form machine stitching - popping in the sequins right before I sealed the last side.
I adhered the "congrats" to the outside of the acetate so that the sequins could "travel" without catching. Yes, I did intentionally position the banners to be slightly offset - since the stitching was "free form" for this you read wonky I decided I didn't want the banners to be perfectly straight.  I think this makes them more dimensional - looks like they are fluttering in a light breeze!. 

Thanks for peeking - hope you have a great week.
