Cas-ual Fridays Challenge Card

Waking up to snow this morning was NOT fun.  But the good news is that Monday is supposed to be in the mid 70's!!  My poor flowers and plants don't know what to do.  My tiger lilies are about three inches high, and daffodils are trying to grow, and now they are knee deep in snow!  I hope they survive.

Since spring keeps playing peek-a-boo with us, I decided to create some spring-y cards with my stamping supplies and colorful inks today.  This card is for the  
Cas-ual Fridays challenge   

I decided to make the background rainbow.  I used painter's tape to tape off the edges of watercolor paper, then brushed on Tim Holtz distress inks in rainbow colors with my Clarity brushes.  When I removed the tape, I had a luscious rainbow background.  I also taped the edge of the card, and used finger daubers to create the rainbow border around the edge.  I created the ribbon border with my black Micron 01 pen.  I attached the panel to a black A-2 top fold card.

I embossed the verse from Cas-ual Fridays Stamps Pretty Posies set onto a black scrap with white embossing, cut it out, and added it to the card front. I stamped flowers from the same Pretty Posies set onto watercolor paper, then fussy-cut them and added them to the card with different depth foam tapes. 

Some tiny sequins finish off the card. 

I am also adding my card to these challenges:
