Cas-ual Fridays 103 Congratulations

Here is a card I made for my old uni housemate who took part in this weekends Edinburgh Marathon. Whilst I was trudging out 10km, she was doing more than 4x that distance. Unfortunately her leg gave way and she had to be taken to hospital, but I wanted to send her a card to show what an amazing thing she's been part of.

As I love rainbows I used a variety of different style of wallpaper from some old pattern books in a rainbow colour selection and trimmed them with my wavy blade on my guillotine.
I know I've said this before, but I just love my Silhouette Portrait. I'd ummed and aahhed for ages before deciding to get it, but am so glad I did. I didn't have a stamp sentiment that I thought suited this card, so I just got my silhouette out and made my own custom sentiment! The star is cut from holographic silver card (which I'll admit I normally hate, but here it looked great!).

I hope you like this card which is being entered into this weeked CAS-ual friday challenge, Congratulations.
