Rainbows and Denim

***2nd post of the day!  Scroll down for CAS-ual Fridays and Lawnscaping***


So clearly I'm playing catch up after two weeks away as I have another card today for 2 more challenges - the JUGS rainbow challenge and the Create denim challenge.
And what better way to combine them than to have a rainbow of stars shooting across a denim sky!    
I cut the denim patch from a skirt that, as cute as it is, will never fit over my hips again.  So instead of pitching it I thought I'd let it have a second life on this card.  The stars are from my trusty fun foam collection which I haven't dipped into in a while but I always have fun with it when I do.  Off to play some ball with the hounds!  Later, gators!

YOU have been very busy since my last visit, your cards are just gorgeous! Sad to hear of the demise of your denim skirt, but loving how you have used it!!

Super cute!! And what a brilliant idea to use denim that no longer fits - I have a lifetime supply of that stuff! LOL Love the foamy rainbow stars. Great design, too!!

This is brilliant - you did make me smile when you mentioned the denim skirt :) I think it looks super here and those foam stars are great. It's such a fun card.
