Bold Blooms Happy Birthday - (CTD438)

Hello there!  I'm hostess this week over on the Color Throwdown Challenge and I've chosen a springtime color palette for us to create with using the colors coral, yellow, leaf green and white.
For my card, I used the My Favorite Things Stamp set, Bold Blooms along with the coordinating Bold Blooms Die-namics to create a birthday card.  I started out with a white card base, then added a panel of watercolor paper that I had watercolored using some twisted citron distress ink.  Once the watercoloring was dry, I die cut and embossed my watercolor panel using a scalloped rectangle die and stitched rectangle die.  After that, I stamping my flowers and leaf images in berry sorbet, pure poppy, honey nut, new leaf and daffodil delight ink and then die cutting them out.  Next I used the MFT Happy Birthday Die-namics die to die cut my sentiment from daffodil cardstock and blended on some daffodil ink along the bottom.  Once all of my stamped/die cut pieces were done, I added them to my card front popping up the largest flower and adding some iridescent Stickles to the center and a few pale green iridescent sequins.
