Rainbow birthday and faux letterpress

The card I worked on today was inspired by the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday  Work-It challenge. Their theme was things that are rainbow colored. I started this yummy card off with blending three distress inks: Peacock feathers, Worn lipstick, and Squeezed lemonade. After that I stamped over my blended piece with white pigment ink. When the pigment ink was finally dry I die cut my rainbow panel with a stitched outline. Then I die cut a stitched circle out of vellum, and also the word, "Birthday" out of silver poster board. I matted my rainbow panel on black card stock and adhered it to white top folding card base. 
For the cupcake I colored it with Copic markers and covered the frosting with a Wink of Stella. I assembled my card as seen above and added some tiny stars die cut from silver glitter tape trim.

This next card is something new I tried. Jennifer McGuire had a post recently about how to do faux letter press with die cuts. (Check out the link) A very neat video she had on her website. So, I tired it for the first time and this was the results.
