Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #109

Lately I have really enjoyed taking part in challenges.  It not only gets my creative juices flowing, but it allows me to share my work with other stampers joining the same challenge.  I really LOVED the rainbow challenge because I love the colors of the rainbow all together!  :)  It didn't take me long to pick the colors (Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Pacific Point and Concord Crush), nor was it hard to pick the stamp set (Circle Circus).  Circle Circus really works well with loads of color.  I did two cards and although it was hard to pick just one for the challenge, I liked this one better...
I created my own "DSP" by stamping the various Circle Circus stamps all over the background.  Then I punched out one of each color and layered them onto their coordinating circle.  The Daffodil Delight satin ribbon really compliments the colors and the Happy Birthday came out so crisp and clean!  I love it!
For my second card I decided to use the Take A Spin stamp set from SU!  I love the way this card turned out as well.  I accidently cut the background the wrong size but decided to use it and punch out rainbow colored circles for the bottom!  This card works for anyone!
