Rainbow Lady's challenge this week was to use a fan. I used a Fiskars daisy border punch along a piece of vellum then pleated the vellum and opened it to a fan shape and tied a piece of ribbon round. I used some co-ordinating papers from a copy of Making Cards and added a small topper with a brad.

This is my card for this week's Rainbow Lady's challenge, one colour from the rainbow. I used an Elsusive Images stamp, and coloured with all shades of red (some don't look very red on the photo, but shades were all red). I used sakura pens, cosmic shimmer, Twinkling H2O's for the colours, eyelets and red ribbon, finished with a Prima flower and adhesive stones. I stamped Friends with Versamark and clear embossing powder, all put together on a red card and shades of red paper.
