Penny's challenge 296: anything goes

This is my design card for Penny's challenge 296: anything goes - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting by the rest of the team and we hope you will be able to join in our challenge.

I used the lovely Lacy Sunshine's Rory's over the rainbow image, kindly supplied by them as one of the sponsors of the challenge. I coloured with spectrum noir pencils (made a change to use these instead of reaching automatically for alcohol pens). The image was cut with a todo art deco die.

I found a piece of rainbow paper for the background - this wasn't quite big enough for the card blank so I cut it in two and used the piece of spotted ribbon to fill the gap. Greeting and gems from stash.
