A Rainbow of Meaning

Hello.  Welcome.  I have made this card using the Share the Joy sketch.  

I used stamps from Unity KOM 11/13.  The frame and the sentiment are NBUS.  I mention this since Janis proposed we should try and use some of our uninked Unity rubber, so in the spirit of a challenge within a challenge.... Hi Janis.  I stamped and embossed the frame and coloured the flowers with chalk inks.  I masked, stamped and embossed the girl with red powder.  I stamped the heart of flowers with Dusty Concord and also did a watercolour wash with the same ink inside the frame.  Then I made my rainbow banner using some lace, distress inks and feathers cut using Cheery Lynn Dream Catcher #2.
