Hand painted watercolor card

Hi there!
Happy Friday!
                       Watercolors are one of the best medium for landscape. I capture the nature scene on my watercolor CS. They may not be perfect or completely finished work of art, but a quick impression with a certain moods and essential color reference.
    For this painting I used my watercolors-white, sky blue, cobalt blue, sap green, light green, dark green, mustard yellow, orange, brown and black from Tri-Star watercolor cakes. I combined wet and dry techniques. It is important that the background is painted all at once and we do not touch it any more.
A closer view....
 Then, I let it dry and painted the deep forest area with lots of pine trees. After dried it, I used a silhouette stamp from Crafty Individuals for the wild grass, ferns, butterflies and dandelion partially at the bottom edge using archival black ink. I matted it on a white sheet and then on a turquoise CS. The sentiment "smile" is from Darcies Find Joy set and Happy Birthday sentiment is a die from Spellbinder shapeabilities Sentiments and highlighted the scripted words using Sakura White pen. I finished off my card with a Tim Holtz idealogy Jute string in turquoise color adding a bow and button.
 Here is the inside view:
                                      I added a border using jef punch border. And the sentiment is from Stampin' up!- "you are lovely" set. I used an emboss resist technique.  I used Wow opaque bright white ultra fine embossing powder and  Raspberry, scattered straw and peacock feather distress inks and versa green color.
 A closer look......
I hope you like my project!                                                                                                                      
 Hope all you have a day filled with smiles and stamping!

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
