Lawnscaping Challenge - Bling It!

Hello! I'm thrilled to be involved in my second Lawnscaping Challenge, and to be sharing it with you! The theme of this challenge is "Bling It" -- to add sparkle via Stickles, Glitter, Shimmer, or whatever type of sparkle you want. You can view the challenge here.

Though I love Stickles and use them on many projects, I use them in pretty small doses, and usually 'clear' colors like Diamond or Crystal. I decided this Challenge would be a great opportunity for me to think outside of my own little box! For the Sparkle elements, I used sequins, rhinestones, and 3 different Stickles. Here is what I came up with:
