Happy Birthday Wreath

I decided I wanted to enter PTI  Watercolor Smooshing challenge so earlier this week I experimented with some different colors and used the techniques that BetsyVeldman showed on the video. here
I have used the happy from Phrase Play 5 several times but I had never used the whole die on a card so I chose a piece of the smooshed paper cut it with the phrase play. I stamped the sentiment from the matching Phrase Play stamp set. Then I remembered that I had just gotten this die from Die-Namites and thought they would work together and they did.  I cut the happy part a second time so I could glue them together and have the second cut sit on the top of the wreath. My Swiss dot  embossing folder was still on my desk sooo why not.  I am trying to use some of my dies more often so I dug out this Spellbinder die to finish the bottom of the card.

I will enter this in the following challenges.
