AAA cards Challenge #95

The AAA cards challenge this forthnight is: rainbows.
Our sponsor for this challenge: Stamplorations - product specified by Shery, value up to $15 + 10% coupon offer for players.

For my card I used the MISTI and the Simon Says Stamp Happy 3x4 stamp set for the word "happy".
I positioned it 2cm off the bottom ot the cardbase and started stamping.
I used Memento dewdrops for my stamping and I used: Love letter, Tangelo, Dandelion, Peartart, Bahama blue, Grape jelly and lilac posies.

I cleaned off the stamp really well in between colors and moved the card instead of the stamp, at one point I reached the edge of the MISTI, so I lifted up the cardbase and let it stick out at one end, that worked.

For the "birthday"  I also used a Simon Says Stamp stamp set, called "it's your birthday" and I've stamped it with Versafine onyx black ink.
I've added three matching rhinestones along the rainbow.

And just to show you if you use the MISTI but don;t align it properly in the corner, you can still mess up your card :-(...had to start over...
