Paper Smooches SPARKS-Colorful Greetings

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! ***
This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is a designer draft challenge.  I used the sketch along with the new Luminous Spring stamp set on my card.

Sending Colorful Greetings card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper SmoochesI replaced the sketch's fishtail flag strip with a rainbow fashioned from narrow strips of scrap cardstock.  The end of the rainbow was covered with a pair of clouds cut with PS's Curly Clouds dies.  It's hard to tell in the photo, but I cut the clouds from shimmery white cardstock to differentiate them a bit from the white backdrop.  I added the set's "sending colorful greetings" across the top of the rainbow.  I matted the words on black cardstock to help them stand out.  A few silver sequins arranged around the rainbow add a little fun sparkle to the design.

Don’t miss what the rest of the SPARKS team has created this week. Here’s where to find them:
