Rainbow Thanks

Hi everyone, with Thanksgiving coming up in the US this week, there are several challenges around on the theme of Thanksgiving / Thank you. Living in the UK we don’t do Thanksgiving, but I thought I would take a little break from making Christmas cards and make a Thank you card instead. I have also been making quite a few complex Christmas scenes lately, so I have gone in a different direction and made a relatively CAS card - here it is.

I cut a 13cm square of white card, stamped and heat embossed the flower then coloured it with Sakura Stardust pens. I added a little background stamping then overlaid it with a die cut shadow sentiment after I had added some gold Posca spatters ( I actually got my spatters to behave themselves - a minor miracle!). I matted the panel onto black and gold card stock then my card blank, and finished with a scattering of teeny rainbow coloured gems.

Stamps: Visible Image Creative Chaos;
Media: Versafine Clair (Nocturne); clear embossing powder; Sakura Stardust pens (red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue, purple); Posca pen (gold);
Tools: Simon Says Stamp “Script Thanks” die.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Beautiful Blossoms #11 - Anything Floral Goes
Colourful Options (November) - Rainbow Inspired (2nd entry)
Creatalicious #271 - Anything Goes with option Thanksgiving/Thank you
Creative Crafters #70 - Anything Goes
Mix It Up #68 - Anything Goes with option Stamping
Paper Funday #59 - Anything Goes with option Grateful/Thankful/Thank you
Simon Says (Monday) - Thanks/Thanksgiving
Simon Says (Wednesday)Thanks/Thanksgiving 
Word Art Wednesday #621/622 - Anything Goes (4th entry)

I hope the rainbow hued flower will provide a bit of cheer in light of the awful miserable weather that seems to have been going on forever! Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend - take care and thanks for visiting.
