Totally Trees Modern Thank You Card ft. Stampin' Up

EDIT: Top 3 at Time Out
I've been using a lot of fall/autumn colors lately, so for today's card I decided to bring back the bright, intense colors! The tree stamps are from Stampin' Up's Totally Trees set, and the sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases. 

I could keep this card very simple and stop after stamping and heat embossing the focal images. However I really wanted to try out this frame die from Mama Elephant, so this is what I did instead. I added some interest to the frame by sponging Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry, and Stormy Sky distress inks onto the upper half of the die cut. 

I flicked some water droplets onto the inked portions of the frame for the splotchy effect, and mist a layer of Perfect Pearls water for the shimmery look. To finish off the card, I added a few Liquid Pearls drops.
