Simon Says Challenge is Spread Your Wings. My very first thought was the word S.O.A.R, the title of one of my favorite songs by the band Devour the Day. The meaning of the acronym is Suffer, Overcome, And Recover. So I flipped to a background page in my art journal and went to work. I love how it turned out, and I hope you all will too.

I found a 3x3 inch box, spray painted one half black as the base. In the bottom of the box I laid in the stripes of colored card stock to make my rainbow. The quote is stamped on vellum and the flower brads just put through punched holes in the corner. I then glued it down using the space behind the brads so it didn't show oddly through the vellum. The small paper flower on the right I made by taking 1/2in square pieces of the same card stock I used for the rainbow, stacking them with glue dots in between for a little more depth, then slowly working in all the corners until it resembled a flower, craft wire made the stem. Small sticky gems were placed on the opposite side to make it seem more balanced.
