Celebrate It's Your Birthday - (CTD391)

Hi there!  It's Wednesday and time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.
Before I get to my post, I'd like to first welcome our new CTD team member, Amy Rohl.  I'd also like to welcome this month's guest designer, the talented Jill Hawkins.  Welcome ladies!
For my card I did a bit of watercoloring using the Papertrey Ink stamp set Bold Blossoms.  I used a panel of watercolor paper for my background which I watercolored using my Gansai Tambi pale aqua then once it was dry I stamped my sentiment.  Then I die cut and stamped my flower from watercolor paper and used my Zig Clean Color pens to watercolor the flowers and leaves.  I used some foam tape to pop up the lower orange flower and added some sequins as a final touch.
For more inspiration, check out the design teams' blog links below OR you can go to the Color Throwdown blog for details on how to play along and you can see all the sample entries in one location.
