Rainbow Birthday

This is blogging from the road... please excuse any autocorrect weirdness!
I made this card for my daughter a couple of weeks ago, knowing we would not be home on her birthday (which falls on Saturday). She's a colorful kid, and I wanted to make her a colorful card. Between that and all the rainbow inspiration out in blogland lately, this was a snap to design.
For the rainbow panel, I colored in a half sheet of watercolor paper with watercolor crayons and spritzed generously with water. I then used an aquapainter to blend the colors. It was a quick and easy process. While the panel was still wet, I sprayed it with vanilla Smooch spritz. I mounted the dry panel on a crimped piece of Pacific Point cardstock. The base is Tempting Turquoise stamped with the cupcake top from the Create a Cupcake stamp set, using white craft ink. Every time I see that shape, I think "Cloud!" The turquoise piece was then also sprayed with vanilla spritz. The sentiment is from Swirly & Curly Verses. I colored the balloons with Real Red and Pacific Point markers.
Hope she likes it! Colorful, fun, and sparkly, just like she is!
