A Just for Fun Card

I saw a color challenge when I was surfing this morning, but I didn't have the image stamp they required.  I decided to do it anyway using their colors - pastel colors of the rainbow.  So, I surfed a little further and found a couple challenges that it would qualify for. 

I am entering this in:
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge -- embossing either wet or dry
Craft Ann's Challenge -- at least 2 circles

I used the pastel colors from my scraps.  I die cut them with my new Die-Namics Hexagons Dies.  Once cut, I adhered them to a 5.25 x 4" piece of cardstock and then laid them out in order of the colors in that first site.  Then I ran that piece through my Big Shot using the circles embossing folder.  I added the pastel colored ribbon and then adhered the piece to the card base (Recollections).  The image is from Penny Black, stamped on white cardstock and colored with Copics.  I cut the background for the image with my Spellbinders die.  The little tiny butterflies on the image are from the outer circle of the die.  I colored them with Copics and adhered them around the flower and on the sentiment die cut.  The sentiment die cut is from an SU punch.  I adhered the sentiment to the card with a little foam to give it a little dimension.
