And I found one.
The watercolor-y drips off the end are my new favorite thing. Well, that and the perfect gold-foil script, because how did they do that.

Raise your hand if you just wondered what color this would be on the way out.

And finally, one more elegant-but-oh-so-cheery rainbow confection that I kind of want to pin in my hair:
Or at least all the flowery parts.
Happy Sunday, everyone! Here's to finding your own rainbows... 'cuz these are all mine now.
