Summery Leaves for a Birthday

The Winnie & Walter Color challenge is about to end. Decided to make a second card & combine it with the new Rerun Challenge & ABNH where the collaboration is with W&W. Unfortunately, I forgot that the theme is florals--that'll teach me not to double check--haha!  
Shay's Rerun card with the symmetrical arrangement of trees inspired my design using 3 images from In Bloom: Renee's Leaves.  After white embossing, the leaves were messy watercolored with DI squeezed lemonade, picked raspberry & salty ocean.  The top line of the sentiment is from Hero Arts Find Joy (masked to use just the 3 words) & celebrate is from W&W Big, Bold Seasons.  I stamped with HA Field Greens, using my Mini MISTI to re-stamp just the word celebrate.  I sprayed the panel liberally with Heidi Swapp white Color Shine.  
The lined strip is done with Scenery: Stripes 2 & the same green ink.  I attached the strip to a larger piece of white cardstock covered with MFT Glitter Glaze.  A tiny strip of yellow textured cardstock was attached to the card front to tie in with the center leaf.  I mounted the strip with foam tape & added some PPP marshmallow sequins.  I'm also entering HLS Watercolor Challenge, Paru's Card Making Challenge, SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
