Rainbow of Friendship (posted by Claire)

Hi there, my card today uses the beautiful sprig of flowers from Dusky Damask and one of the sentiments from Pretty Poppies

I've stamped the flower sprigs with different colours of distress ink to give a rainbow effect and used the same inks to colour some seam binding ribbon. The swirls are from Butterfly Flourish again stamped with distress ink pads. I used distress markers to ink up the sentiment stamp from Pretty Poppies and also the butterflies from Butterfly Flourish. The sentiment is die cut and I used tape to attach the ribbon,  pleating it as I went along. I matted the card on some rainbow card that I made with white card and distress markers and attached the butterflies with silicone glue for a bit of dimension.

Thanks for visiting and I do hope you'll keep checking back to see my team mates beautiful projects this week
