I first sponged the background blending Pear Pizzazz into So Saffron. It gives it a very soft watercoloured look. I then water-coloured the daisies (from the Helping Me Grow Stamp Set) using a blend of Melon Mambo and Blushing Bride. The stems are watercoloured with Old Olive. I fussy cut these out as I wanted them to be raised with dimensionals from the card. Stamping them first and then masking them would also have looked great. The reeds/grass at the bottom is from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set. The dragonfly is from the Touches of Texture stamp set and is watercoloured with Soft Sky and Basic Gray (for the body). It is also fussy cut and adhered to the flower. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set and used the Pretty Label Punch to punch it out. I used Blushing Bride to gently sponge the label and went around the edge with a Blushing Bride Stampin' Write Marker. The base is Whisper White, and the picture is matted on Basic Black and Blushing Bride Cardstock.
