Count your rainbows, SBS Challenge #1

Super excited...Simply Betty Stamps has a new challenge blog! I couldn't wait to play along with her 1st challenge. She posted a picture of her totally rockin', I'm so jealous I don't have a pair, funky socks as inspiration. What a blast this challenge was to work on. Here's the socks! Don't they rock?
Here's my card:
I made my paper by taking white card stock and smearing all sorts of colors of Distress Ink on it. Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug with a cool cheetah print folder by Sizzix. I then sprayed the paper with a few matching colors of Glimmer Mist and Smooch Spray and finished it by inking the embossing with black soot Distress Ink. Totally love the look I got!
I even colored cute little Betty with my Glimmer Mist and Smooch Spray. She turned out so bold and vibrant, not to mention a bit sparkly. I don't recommend this unless using a paint brush cuz I ruined a blender pen in the process. :(
My sentiment is a stamp from Inkadinkado, it's a kids quotes stamp.
I love this new gauze like ribbon that they have in at Altered Art and Scrap Playground. Makes for a cool embellishment. I added some black glitter snowballs (I don't know if that's really what they are called) and a few tiny blings to Betty's eyes.  
Can't wait for next weeks challenge!
