Summer School Finish..Plus

Hurrah--I finished MFT Summer School & I'm getting my cards posted before the deadline this time!  
Day 4 is Ombre
I used one of my first MFT stamp sets called Thankful Leaves.  To begin, I inked an acrylic block with Distress Inks abandoned coral, spiced marmalade & carved pumpkin, spritzed with water & "stamped" onto a white card front.  I used a wet brush to blend the inks & then "stamped" again with the inked acrylic block & less water for more texture.  I added some water drops, but could have done without that step. 
Next I used the same inks to stamp the leaves & Delicata Golden Glitz for the veins. The sentiment from the same set was stamped in DI gathered twigs & the gold ink.  Finished off with gold sequins.

Day 5 is Rainbow
Oh boy did I have fun with one of my newest MFT dies called Block Happy Birthday!  So fun & easy to make a rainbow with Copic markers.  After die cutting the words I mounted the panel to a super sparkly glitter paper & used foam tape to mount it to a small black card.  Couldn't get a picture to show the sparkle, but it honestly doesn't need any embellishments.

Now for the plus in my post title--MFT Birthday Project, CAS Birthday
Had to use the rainbow letters before they got lost--haha!  I stacked them 3 high & added Stickles to the colored letters.  I just wasn't happy with quite so much white space, but I didn't want to add any embellishments.  Thankfully, the letters were spaced far enough from the bottom for me to add 3 scored lines above & below.  Really amazing the difference those lines make.  Surprisingly, I actually captured the sparkle from the Stickles in this close up.
Now to decide who to send this to!  Thank you so much for taking time to stop by.
