Amazing Birthday in Watercolor

I still reach for the watercolors when I need to make a card.  This birthday card was a lot of fun to make, and the watercolor panel, looked kinda meh when it was wet, but I absolutely am thrilled with it dry. I love this Simon Says Stamp set, its a wonderful big birthday wish!

After water coloring the panel with Koi water colors and heat gun drying it, the sentiment was stamped with smokey grey versafine ink and heat embossed with clear powder. The patterned paper was left over from a Simon Says Stamp card kit. The flower is from Michaels, and the twine and button were a gift.  I popped up the center panel after matting it in black.

I am entering it in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge -Emboss it.

Thanks for stopping by!
