Pinkfresh Studio's May Challenge

It's "Anything Goes" this month at the Pinkfresh Studio Monthly Challenge, with a beautiful rainbow palette thrown in if it suits your fancy!

I couldn't resist those colors, so I made a rainbow sherbet-colored card with the Folk Hummingbird. Pretty Paisley, and Fleur 1 sets...

I started by stamping and die cutting Pretty Paisley with Ink on 3 embossing ink then heat embossing with their Arctic White embossing powder. I then brushed over them with Distress Oxide inks. The top paisley in Spun Sugar, Festive Berries, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, and the bottom in  Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, and Seedless Preserves. I placed that panel over a piece of white cardstock embossed with a dotted circle folder from Lifestyle Crafts.

Embossed and inked the Folk Hummingbird and flowers from Fleur 1 the same way, then added Stardust Stickles on the bird's beak, wings, chest, and tail feathers. Added some iridescent sequins to the background to showcase those rainbow colors some more! I almost added a sentiment, but was too nervous to keep going! I'll add a cheerful or uplifting one on the inside when needed.

These sets go perfectly together, and I just love that hummingbird!
