Stampin' Up! Outlined Occasions & Sprinkled Expressions Rainbow Cards

Good Morning My Stamping Friends, I hope you're having a fantastic day! I'm sitting here with the sun pouring in the window, warming my back, and wishing it was already Spring. Only a few more weeks to wait and I'm super excited about that.

Anyway, on to my card share for today. I recently needed a quick, cheery, colorful, thank you card so I looked at one of the Valentines day cards I posted here and tweaked it a little bit. In my mind I was going to do a similar card and just change the colors to a rainbow and this is what it turned into.
