I began with my watercolor background. I sprinkled on some brushos and then spritzed the panel with water. I dabbed it with a paper towel here and there. I may have added a bit more flakes along with water. I then set it aside to dry.

I then took the large happy stamp and my markers. I colored in the happy with Basic Black and used the other markers on the flowers below.

Once the watercolor panel was dry, I breathed on the stamp to re-activate the ink and then stamped my panel.

I then added the words above the happy.

I chose to add a bit of glimmer. In looking through my envelope of Red Glitter paper, I found the strip that I had used to punch out hearts. So, I decided to just place it on the bottom of the card as a border. This is why I don't like to throw away my scraps. (I also sometimes punch these pieces to create fillers for my shaker cards.)

The two panels looked a bit bland to me. So, I grabbed one of my doilies and placed it underneath. I think it is just what the card needed. I adhered the layers onto the card. 

Lastly, I added rhinestones and the other panel to the inside of the card.
