Celebrate stars watercolor card ~ MCT Birthday Palooza

Today, the My Creative Time team is sharing birthday themed projects.

Sentiment:  Celebrate.

This background watercolor panel was leftover from a previous project.  I used the star pieces on another card.  And I almost pitched this into the trash.  But then I thought of making another card with a birthday or celebration theme.  And so this card was born.

I trimmed the leftover watercolor paper to fit my card base.  Then, I added a stamped and die-cut celebrate sentiment.  To finish, I added a few adhesive pearls.  This was made in less than twenty minutes.
Tip:  You can get a similar look by die-cutting patterned paper using stars or other shapes.

Here is another look.

Supplies:  My Creative Time Bunch Of Stitched Stars and Best Day Ever; Simon Says Stamp intense black ink, mini misti, adhesive pearls, watercolor brushes and Altenew watercolor half pans.
