Glass Effects, rainbow style

Hi everyone!  My card today features the super cute new Glass Effects decorative card front die.  I used the reverse of this die.  Not gonna lie, this technique was pretty time consuming, but I love the final result and it was worth it.
Below is a visual on how I made this.  First I die cut the card front in pink cardstock and drew black lines to separate where I wanted the colors to be.  Then I die cut the various colors and kept the pieces that matched their spot.  I used pink cardstock for my template so it would stand out against the white card base.  I glued the pieces in, being careful not to glue down the pink template.  After all the pieces were adhered, I removed the template and cleaned up any adhesive residue.
Designer tip:  see my adhesive remover down at the lower right?
I love this thing!  I also use it to remove the little cardstock "hairs" that can be on the edges of the die cuts.  One swipe on the adhesive remover block and the hairs are gone!
