Color Pop Birthday

This card is a bit outside of my comfort zone...but I like it.  It started out as a mistake correction.  I had muddied my mini Distress Ink pads and swiped them on a piece of water color paper to clear the mud.  I sort of liked the color combo so I spritzed the cardstock rather heavily with water and just left it to dry.  The watercolor paper was pretty warped so I decided to use a piece of it as a floral background die cut.  What I like is the ombre effect on the petals.  I'm sort of in a "boho" phase right now so mixed some patterns again to create a bright and cheerful birthday card.
