Simply Rainbow

I found this little bit of rainbow-ish ribbon in my stash and I wanted to make the most of it. I put the ribbon through the front aperture and then glued in the shaker portion, so that the ribbon wrapped around the inside too.

The card base is from the cloud shaker card kit by Jillibean Soup. I filled the shaker with plastic confetti (Recollections) and sealed it with a piece of acetate. The sentiment (Scrapmaster's Paradise) reads, "May your days be filled with color," and is stamped on the inside with an ombre ink pad (Recollections).

I used a cloud embossing folder and coasterboard for the front. I inked the embossed piece with white chalk ink, which is barely noticeable but brighten the natural color. I traced the cloud shape & hand-cut it out. The birds were stamped with an Artsy Fartsy stamp (3 little birds) and a ColorBox ink pad set. I added little bits of ink each time to create a rainbow look. I heat-embossed them with clear powder to make the colors pop.
