PTI January Blog Hop

Today I'm participating in the January PTI Blog Hop.  We have a colorful collage image by Alex Ray for our inspiration this month.
And here is my card.
Everything accept the sequins are from PTI on my card today -  I used stamps from Watercolor Wonder and dies from Birthday Cheer and Tipped Tops Die set.  I adhered both panels over the card with foam dots so they both stand out.  Given the colors, this would make a great masculine card or it would also be a good card to give to co-workers or artists!

I'm sure there is a lot of colorful inspiration over at Nicole's  Papertrey Blog where everyone is linking their Blog Hop cards -  I'm off to take a peak!
Stamps:  Watercolor Wonder-  PTI
Paper:  White, True Black - PTI
Ink:  Orange Zest, Blueberry Sky - PTI
Accessories:  Dies - Birthday Cheer, Tipped Tops - PTI, foam dots, Sequins - Shaker Mix Vanilla Frost - Waltzingmouse.

I LOVE the way you used watercolor wonders on your card! You could make this card over and over in any color combination! Nicely done Julia!

What a great card Julia. Love the brush strokes in blue and orange... the black die-cut word looks great on the colors. Nice take on the photo. Can I ask you if you used anything between the card stock and word die? I have the same set but having a hard time with the thin dies. The cardstock gets stuck inside and I often tear the paper getting it out... any suggestions? buzsy@yahoo.com
