Monochrome Rainbow

Today's card is a thank you for the woman who did the quilting on the quilt I just made.  She did a beautiful job and I just wanted another way to express my gratitude for the wonderful work she did and also for doing it so quickly.

The card is smaller than I usually make, but I needed it to fit in an odd sized envelope.  The card is 3 1/2"x5."  I used kraft card stock for the base.  The light pink piece is 2"x4 1/4," and the dark pink piece is 2 1/8"x4 3/8."  I stamped the light pink piece with the word "thanks" repeatedly, using a shimmery pink ink.  The sentiment is from the Sentiment Sampler set by Paper Smooches.  In fact, all the stamps are from Paper Smooches.

The rainbow is from the Spectrum set.  I colored it in with varying shades of pink.  I also highlighted the clouds with a very pale pink.  I then cut out the rainbow and adhered it with foam tape.  The large word, "thanks," is from the Chit Chat set.  I stamped it on green card stock, then fussy cut it all out.  To finish off the card I added some green sequins.

I made this card for the following challenges:
