Just Us Girls #289 - Color Week

Hi all!  I'm the hostess this week over at Just Us Girls for our Color Week.  I love brown with almost any color, so I chose brown, white or beige, and any third color of your choosing.
Here's what I came up with.  Last week's JUGs challenge was a shaker card and I missed it.  So, I chose to do one this week!  This one is a flat shaker, so the sequins don't move around so much.  For the design, I chose to use Distress inks in picked raspberry and gathered twigs on watercolor paper.  The background stamp is a new one from My Favorite Things and I'm in LOVE with it!  After inking it up, I spritzed it with water and stamped it on the watercolor paper.  The opening was die cut with a MFT die and I backed it with white cardstock stamped with this sentiment.  I added some acetate and the sequins and adhered it all together.  I don't know if you can see it, but I added some pink dew drops as well as some clear ones.   
You can see more from the design team on these blogs.
Thanks for stopping by!

This is so beautiful, Lisa! It's funny, but I just bought this background stamp too. We seem to always pick the same stamps. I love the way you have inked this one and I am so inspired! Can't wait to get mine inky.
