Remember Sequins?

Does anyone play with sequins anymore? I remember when I was little my grandma would give me sequins, felt and glue and I would be happy for hours! She played with sequins and made this gorgeous Christmas tree out of different shaped Sequins. I still have that and every year at Christmas gets hung up. On a trip to our cabin a while back, we stopped at Pamida and I walked the craft isle. I found this HUGE bag of different shaped Sequins! I grabbed them. I have never used them until last night when I wanted a real retro looking card! I wasn't overly thrilled with the colors I had used and I used a DP with dots that didn't show up the way I wanted it to. So SEQUINS popped into my head. Found the sequins and went to town! This pic does not do this card justice! It turned out great with the shiney sequins! The stamps is by Rubbernecker, one of my new ones I just got and I've been eyeing it for some time. Finally broke down and bought it!
Hope everyone is having a great week!
