Shake It Up!

Sometimes you find this beautiful designer paper, and you don't want to cover it up. That's the case with my card today. I love the bold rainbow of colors in this patterned paper from DCWV.
I started by watercoloring a background of greens and yellows using Kuretake watercolors. I stamped my pear image and the sentiment (Stampin' Up! Fresh Fruit) using VersaFine Onyx Black ink, and cut the panel and a frame using Stampin' Up!'s stitched oval dies.
I added my acetate sheet to the frame, and carefully placed my colored sequins (Doodlebug) on the pear panel, then added the frame on top.
There is a new challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges and it's all about greens! The Green Apple Plaid Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon was a perfect match for my watercolored panels, so I wrapped it around the front of the card, and then added a simply tied, single bow. It has such a great texture to work with too, and really holds its shape. The plaid gingham adds such a nice contrast to the fruit designer paper, I think!

The inside has another piece of the designer paper, and another (flat) watercolored oval that says "Happy Birthday." Our challenge ends on Friday, so come play along with your green stuff!
