I can see a Rainbow

Hello and thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog today. I Hope you are managing to get some sunshine wherever you are in the world. In Scotland it has been sunshine and showers this week and we had the most beautiful rainbow early on in the week which gave me inspiration for my DT card  for Cheery Lynn Designs and although bright colours are really outwith my comfort zone, I always think it is good to challenge ourselves in trying something new.

I cut out my doily in several shades of the rainbow and then cut each doily in half. I next glued them together in a graduated style that would fit my DL sized card. Once placed on my card I cut out a doily in white card stock and stamped my sentiment onto it before placing onto the middle of my card.

My flower was made using the Shasta Daisy die. On the top layer I placed a little glue on the outside edges of my petals and curled them around with my tweezers and held down until the glue gripped, finally adding a piece of bling into the centre. My butterfly was also cut in bright shades to compliment my rainbow.

Thanks for your continued comments I love reading them all.

    12. Lucky you with a rainbow - we've just got dank grey wetness (though I did encounter lovely weather in Wales at the weekend, so I shouldn't complain). Love how the colours inspired you in this bold, bright and beautiful card - the layered doilies look just great!
