Rainbow butterflies


Last minute card for Seize The Birthday where the "toppings option" is Rainbow (all the stamps used are by Happy Little Stampers).

Also linking up to (total of 5)
The Card Concept - Colourful Basics (inspired by the rainbow stripes, in Clean and Simple Mixed Media style)
Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge - AG w/optional twist of Butterfly

I actually started this card last week and things seem to have got in between then and finishing it, including a gelli plate workshop!

Thanks for looking!

Soft sweet colors that blended so well together and made a stunning card. I love those embossed butterflies. The vellum adds another soft touch to the card.

A study in delicacy, Sue ... those lovely blended, pastel colours, the dainty embossed butterflies, and that dreamy vellum sentiment panel ... just so pretty! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Anita :)

Oh how I love a rainbow, especially a pastel rainbow!! This is so beautiful, especially with the heat embossed white butterflies showing through. And so glad you used vellum for your sentiment so not to cover up those gorgeous colours. Its a fabulous card and I'm so glad you shared it with us at TIME OUT!

Lovely blended rainbow background and I like that you used vellum so as not to take away from the beautiful rainbow butterflies. Thank you for jo in bing us at STB

The white heat-embossed butterflies pop against the soft and pretty rainbow background, Sue! Using a vellum strip for the sentiment is a great idea, not completely covering the background.
