Happy - with watercolors MIM

Papertrey's Make It Monday was to create something with a watercolor effect.  I thought it would be a good opportunity to get out my new stamp set, "Embellished Elegance".  I "painted" my flowers an leaves first and then used my PTI "happy" die to create a layered effect. "Birthday" comes from "Everyday Happiness".  It needed a little something as an accent, so I added a bit of sparkle.

Cardstock:  PTI Hawaiian Shores
Inks:  Hawaiian Shores, Summer Sunshine, Limeade Ice
