Rainbow challenge


Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful spring weather!  I actually cut the grass today, something I LOVE doing!  Felt great to get outside.  

I did make some time to create, too, and this card is for a challenge over at 

LiveLoveCards is the website of one of my favorite card makers, Darlene DeVries.  I became a fan of hers through her YouTube channel, and a few months ago she introduced her new website.  I love her 2-3 times a week postings of FABULOUS cards!

So the challenge for April is to have a rainbow theme in a card.  

Challenge accepted!  :)

I recently got all the new dye inks from Ranger, and these colors are TO DIE FOR.  Great basic colors for stamping.  So I pulled out all the rainbow colors and used them on a My Favorite Things diagonal background stamp.  Took several tries and this was the best one!  LOL

The stamp itself is from Stampendous and I stamped it on my rainbow backround, then stamped it again on another paper, cut out the flowers, and pop dotted them to the other flower.  I also added a dot of enamel accents to the center of the flowers. 

Thank you so much for visiting and commenting. I do appreciate ALL visits!!  I'll do my best to pay you a visit back.  :)

Have a great night!  :)
