Rainbow Birthday + Exciting Announcement!!

Hello everyone!!  Today I have a fun rainbow birthday card to share with you that I plan on giving my sweet little girl on her 10th birthday next week.  I thought it was only appropriate that I make her a rainbow since she was born on St. Patrick's Day.....

I used some of the solid bakers twine colors from The Twinery to create the rainbow.  First I stamped the rainbow image from the February 2012 SOTM at Peachy Keen Stamps onto the background paper piece that I cut with rectangle die from Spellbinder's.  While it was in the die, I inked the inside edges with a sponge and ink pad.  I then put on some strong adhesive (like Scor-tape) over the stamped image and then adhered the bakers twine in the rainbow image.  Here is a closer look......

For the clouds, I stamped them from the same stamp set and then added some chunky glitter to them with a clear adhesive.  To finish off my card, I added a sentiment from the same set and tied up the card with more solid bakers twine from The Twinery.  The embossing on the background is done with the Cuttlebug and the patterned paper is from the Simple Stories I {heart} Summer 6x6 paper pack.

Ok, on with my exciting news.  I have been invited to stay on with The Twinery design team for my 3rd term.  YAY!!  I am so happy to be staying along with some other design team members and so happy to see these new names joining us this year as well.......
