Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Crocus Birthday Card

Hello friends!  Beth from Beth's Beauties back with a new project today.  Our featured twine for the month is Totally White Trendy Twine.  It is a must have in your crafting stash because it is so versatile...plus it is on SALE this month!  Here is the card I created with it...
Where is the Totally White Trendy Twine you ask?  I changed it into that lovely lavender color with a Copic marker (BV11)!  I colored it first, so it would have time to dry before adding it to my card.
Ready for a quick tutorial?  I stamped the image and sentiment from SumMore Fun's Crocus Craving stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I watercolored the image using Distress Oxide inks in Dusty Concord, Fossilized Amber, and Lucky Clover then sat that aside to dry.
Then I made an A2 sized white cardstock panel for the outside frame of the card.  One color at a time, I placed ink on my craft mat, spritzed it with water, then dabbed the edges of my cardstock into it, heat setting it between colors.  I repeated the process until I was happy with how it looked.  Using my paper trimmer, I cut in 3/4" from all sides to leave just the outside, so it doesn't matter how messy the inside area is!
Here is a close up of how it turned out!  I love how well the altered Totally White Trendy Twine matches the card.
After adhering the twine and frame to the crocus panel, I added Grape Fizz Sequins with Micro Glue Dots to give the appearance of a shaker card, but without the bulk of foam tape like a traditional shaker card.  I really love how it turned out!
Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
