Rainbow Happy Birthday

 As part of my continuing effort to reduce my snippets mountain I've made this CAS snippets birthday card for a few challenges.

I trimmed a piece of white hammer card so it was slightly smaller than the front of the card blank.  Using the smallest fishtail flag I die cut strips of card in rainbow colours.  The die wasn't long enough for my strips so I cut from the flag to almost the end of the die before moving it down the card, lining up the dots and cutting the rest of the strip.  Following the sketch I attached these rainbow strips across the card.  All my snippets of black card were quite thin, the sort I use for matting, so I cut 'Happy Birthday' three times and layered them before attaching the sentiment across the rainbow strips.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white hammer card blank
     My Favorite Things 'Fishtail Flags' and Crafts Too 'Happy Birthday' dies
     Snippets of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet textured card, white hammer card and black matt card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Freshly Made Sketches - Sketch 448
     Seize the Birthday - Rainbow Colours
     The Male Room - Our 7th Birthday
