Rainbow birthday

CAS(E) this Sketch's sketch #254 was very pretty and floral:
The sketch provided my inspiration - but I think I ended up a bit off-piste - perhaps my decision to try to avoid the literal interpretation of using flowers was to blame! I think you can still see the remains of the sketch, though: 

I do love the new rainbows Stampin' Up has introduced - am going to play with these lots, I think. (And they just beg to be combined with balloons!)
Made using:
Stampin' Up:
Dies (Stitched Shapes, Rainbow Builder Framelits, Up and Away)
Stamps: Lift Me Up, Balloon Celebrations (for the sentiment)
Paper and card: Kraft, Soft Sky, Whisper White, Botanical Gardens Vellum, (and for the rainbow, Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Rose Red (and a random other purple piece)
Derwent Ink Intense Watercolour pencils


  1. This is so pretty and fun! Great take on the sketch!

  2. I don't think you're off-piste at all. I think it's a creative and beautiful interpretation. I love the addition of the hot air balloon and those patterned vellum clouds are amazing!

  3. Wonderful layering of the different elements and a great take on the sketch!
