Birthday Cake Card

I'm still working on Winnie & Walter's World Cardmaking Day challenges.  My birthday cake card is for their smooshing challenge.  I inked up a piece of clear acetate with three ink colors, sprayed them lightly with water and then "smooshed" the acetate on trimmed watercolor paper.  Once I had dried the watercolor paper with my heat gun, I stamped the images and sentiments with black ink.  After I got my card put together, I thought it still needed a little more color.  I got out three matching acrylic paint colors and decorated the cake plus painted below and above the stamped sentiments.  I added some sequins and a hemp bow and was finally happy with the results.  I'm linking my birthday cake card up to these fun challenges:
