Rainbow Floral

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

This time around the "Toppings" options is "Rainbow". However, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!

I must admit, for some reason I struggled a bit with this challenge. I love color and love rainbow, and even have a Pinterest board dedicated to it. I was hoping to make a colorful background as some of my teammates did, but I was unsuccessful in my efforts and they all wound up in the trash. In the end I went with what was more comfortable for me, florals colored with Copic markers. I thought a little border of black at the top and bottom would add a bit of continuity to all these colors, and finished it off with a little smattering of clear sequins.

I'm also playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where it's Anything Goes.

Stamp Sets: Kind Soul (Wplus9), Birthday Greetings (Altenew)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Black (Simon Says Stamp)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Kind Soul Die (Wplus9)
Accessories: Moonshine Sequins (Simon Says Stamp)

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)

I struggle with rainbow challenges, but florals are so much easier - so the next time we have a rainbow challenge, this will be idea I'll go with! Totally love your interpretation, Sandy!! <3

This is such a plush card. Hallmark has nothing on you. I love the spray of flowers and the stunning colors that you colored them. Just drop-dead gorgeous.
