Simon Says - Things That Fly

Hi there I'm zipping in with a super quick card that I've made for this week's challenge
at Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where it's all about 

Things that Fly

I think butterflies are going to be pretty popular and why not!
They are simply too elegant and delicate not to include

I'd also like to drop a little reminder in that there's still time to join 
the AAA Cards Challenge where the theme is rain and watercolour.

You have perhaps realised I'm a little bit MAD over rainbows!
To create the background I've scribbled blocks of colour using
 Derwent Inktense pencils followed by a a hefty spritzing of water 
to allow the colours to run / merge slightly

Using gloss accents I've created raindrops but they aren't too obvious in the photo. 
Then my 'flying thing' is a die-cut butterfly from Clearly Besotted: Butterfly Duo. 
Sentiment from Uniko Studio - Simply Said Birthday
