Stamping 411 Meets Hand Stamped Sentiments - Up, Up & Away

I found a colour challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments and decided to use those colours with the Stamping 411 

I thought I was going to have a tough time fitting all six colours of the rainbow into one card but with some layering and small punches I was able to get them all represented!

When I had the card all put together and was looking at it there was something wrong.  It took me a minute to realize that the "grass" layers did not stand out enough.  I removed the pieces and sponged the edges and when I reattached them I like it much better.

Stamps:  Up, Up & Away
Inks:  Lucky Limeade, Real Red and Pacific Point Classic Inks
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Elegant Eggplant, Lucky Limeade, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White Card Stock
Accessories:  1/1-4 Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Owl Builder Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Stamping Sponges

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!
