Rainbow birthday card

Hello everyone,

I hope you are having some fun over this Bank Holiday weekend in spite of the poor weather. I've been feeling so cold that I'm tempted to put the central heating on again. In August!!

The rain has been reminding me of rainbows so I thought I would make a card using some rainbow die cuts that a friend gave me and also use up a little of my old stash in the form of some daisy ribbon that I've had since I first started crafting around 7 years ago.

I'm going to use this as my first ever entries into the
Papertake weekly challenge which is to use die cuts on a card, 
Aud Sentiments challenge which is Anything Goes,
Inspire Me Fridays which is Anything Goes
and the Just Add Ink challenge which is to use something old from your stash. I used this sweet daisy ribbon

which I also have in a couple of other colours and really must find a use for. I'm quite pleased that I'm keeping up with my New Year resolution to use up more of my old stash and you can see the cards in my Use Old Stash Challenge here.
