This card was originally going to be a full water color background, then then I made a boo-boo and it turned into water color die cut, which I actually think I like better then my original plan.
I used distress markers heavily misted with a perfect pearl / water combination and punch a bunch of circle's out.
I chose my color's based on the color challenge over at the Unity Blog and got inspiration for the sketch/layout from the current challenge over at The Muse Blog.
I'm also entering this into the Thinking of You challenge at the Pile It On blog and the Pearl challenge at Simons Says Stamp. I topped the card off with some liquid pearl accents + a little jeweled bling and finally some green twine based off the Really Reasonable Ribbon Green Challenge.
