Peachy Birthday

 Welcome to a new Fusion challenge.  This time I used the photo as inspiration to come up with this card.

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I've been drawn to coral/peach shades so my eye was immediately drawn to the peachy rainbow in the photo, as well as the birthday theme.  I also wanted to use the pattern in the background but as I don't have an A2 grid pattern die, I decided to use this interlocking circles die.  

I die-cut the rainbow from various coloured and ink-blended cardstock as well as patterned paper.  I then adhered them to a white card base and ran the front through the Subtle embossing folder for some texture.  I then adhered the coverplate over the top, added a stacked birthday sentiment and some black gems to finish off the card.

Thanks so much for visiting.  I hope you'll check out the fabulous cards made by the rest of the design team.

Lovely ombre shading for the rainbow and I love how it's slightly hidden under the die cut panel.
