Happy Birthday for three challenges

This is the 2nd birthday card I need for this week. It also uses Certain Celery as the base.  I used a piece of TH's distress watercolor paper.  I used my Certain Celery ink pad to put down color on a piece of acetate and added water for the smooshed technique.  I then used PaperTrey Ink's Meadow Greens stamp set and inked up the flower in both Daffodil Delight and Primrose Petal inks.  I used Certain Celery for the stems and leaves.  Again, I die cut SU's Happy from Hello You thin lit die cut set and again added 8 layers of Certain Celery card stock behind the white and green happy die cut.  I also used the banner from SU's Bitty Banners, and the word Birthdy from SU's Crazy About You stamp set.  I did cut just a bit off my banner this time.  I finished off the card with yellow bakers twine and pearls.  

Again, what great colors!  I am entering this card not only for this week's Color throwdown, but also for Simon Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes and Djkardkreations' NBUS #4 challenge this week, too.
Please visit all three blogs and check out some awesome cards that others have submitted.  Great places to visit for wonderful inspiration!

I love the subtle smooshing and how you've colored your flowers in the two colors! I also love the dimensional "happy" and the twine! Hmmm, I guess I could have just said I love EVERYTHING about this card, huh?! I want to thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #4 and apologize for taking so long to visit you; life and Easter company got in the way! Enjoy your day and thanks again!!
