I racked my brains for the 'rainbow' challenge at Addicted to CAS,
and came up with this simple, embossed and inked birthday card.

I die-cut a stitched rectangle, stamped the blooms and leaves with Versamark
sprinkled them with white embossing powder, and heat set them.

It's kind of tricky to see where you're stamping with the Versamark, so I just stamped a few blooms at a time and then sprinkled them with white powder as I went along.

After heat embossing them, I inked my 'rainbow' with distress inks.

Then, I die-cut a scalloped edge rectangle, stamped and embossed my sentiment
and attached this to my 'rainbow' panel.
I cut off the edges level with the stitched rectangle.
This piece was then fixed to my card base with foam pads.
