Rainbow birthday card with Simon Says Stamp

Hi Everyone,

All ready for Christmas?! :o) I am most definitely not when it goes to food prep and cooking, but since this year it's only the 3,5 of us (Hubby, myself, the little Toddler and Bump) - we're not really planning on going too crazy. At least all my Christmas cards & packets have been posted (and I think most, if not all, arrived to their destinations) - I didn't have enough for everyone, but I am still happy enough with the amount I did have! 

I took a small break from crafting for a few days, and now that I came back to my craft room, I decided I needed to work on something totally non-Christmassy. Rainbows it is (again), so! :o) Hubby's birthday is tomorrow, and whilst I had a few suitable cards in my stash, I decided to make him something new and fresh. Rainbows are ok for guys, too, right? 

I decided to play with my very favourite Distress Inks. I used the Simon Says Stamp Balloons dies, and - instead of using masking paper - I used regular cardstock with some removable adhesive on the back for my masking. This way I got a bonus - I could make another card with the colourful die cut balloons - I'll share that soon! It's so much fun to be able to make two cards in one sitting - it's not exactly something I achieve every time I craft! 

I had to bling up the card a little bit, masculine or not, and I opted for some splatters with Perfect Pearls, and... my new love - the HoneyBee Stamps Bokeh Lights Confetti Mix. I.LOVE.THEM! So cool, they go with pretty much everything, and they come in different sizes - what's not to love? You'll be seeing more of these on my coming projects, I'm afraid, so get used to them ;o)

And here's the card - I hope you like it! I am pretty pleased with it, especially at this time of the year, when there's barely any sunshine and/or colour around! It makes me smile - and hopefully, it will make the Hubby smile on his birthday, too! 

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
SSS Monday Challenge: Party
SSS Wednesday Challenge: Party time

Enjoy the last few days before Christmas - don't over-stress yourself with the preparations!
