HLS Watercolor Challenge May '17

May 1st means a new challenge at HLS Watercolor Challenge!

You may or may not add the optional twist - red to your card.
Here's some inspiration for you,

I love a shaker card, and I have a feeling that the recipient does too!
The shaker element on my card is from My Favorite Things, and
it's called Replenishments. They're plastic cups that let you fill with
the sequins or shaker stuff, and pop right up, or in my case inside a 
die cut hole.
I embossed the butterfly from Especially For You, 4 times
before water coloring them with Kuratake pan watercolors.
Sentiment PTI's Swoosh die and happy from PTI's Happiness in Bloom.

Play along for a Gift Certificate to HLS' shop!
