So Artful Challenge #6 - Rainbow roses

It's time for another So Artful challenge and this time we have a lovely theme - RAINBOWS.
My card started with the picture of rainbow roses I snapped the other day in a grocery store. The colors got my attention - at first I thought they are plastic or silk, but when I came close I realized they were real. Apparently they split the stem and dip each part into a different colored water - as the plant absorbs the waters, the petals get colored too. Cool, eh?
I used plain cardstock in matching colors to let the roses stand out and added some swirls made with my new Memory box die.

Challenges:
4 Crafty chicks - flowers
Inspired by - colors from the picture
Prairie Fairy - anything goes
