Hello! Happy Friday. I made this card when I got inspired by Stesha Bloodhart over at Stampin' Hoot. Her card is below. She and other Artisan designers had a blog hop last Friday and I loved all of their ideas, especially this one. Even though the subject of the blog hop was shaker cards, this card only looks like one.

I used watercolored background of Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and Crushed Curry on watercolor paper. I framed it with two strips of striped paper from the Golden Honey Specialty Designer paper that I got *FREE* with my $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration (now through March 31st).
When I used the Detailed Bee Die Cuts to cut out that honeycomb shape, I popped up the watercolored panel using Stampin' Dimensionals, which created space between the card base and the watercolor paper. Inside those cut outs (some were left in intentionally) I placed some Iridescent Sequins. This part is what looks like a shaker card, but those sequins stay put and can always be seen.
