Sunshine & Rainbows


Ah, Friday, so good to see you again!  And to celebrate I have a bright and cheerful card.  This week at Colour Me…! we can use up to 5 colours of our choice.  I've used 5 colours here including 4 of the current Stampin' Up In Colours - Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, So Saffron, Pistachio Pudding, and Coastal Cabana.  Despite the fact that I have the cute Lil' Inkers rainbow die, this rainbow was actually created from an off cut (from this card) that's been sitting on my desk for ages.  It pays not to throw those scraps away!  I hope you're having a lovely day and that you weekend is all sunshine and rainbows!



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, So Saffron, Pistachio Pudding, and Coastal Cabana) Stampin' Up
Stamp:  (Sentiment from Rainbow & Cloud Sentiments) Lil' Inker
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Stitched circles, Small Sun) Lil' Inker
Embossing Plate:  (Linen & Canvas) Papertrey Ink
Gems:  Recollections
