Rainbows and Sunshine

It’s been raining all morning and I decided to make a card using my new Sun and Rainbow die set.  IMG_3792
I wasn’t sure when I purchased the rainbow die if it would cut as a single piece or multiple pieces, so I was super excited to find out that it cut out in six separate pieces.  I then decided to cut out the rainbow in red, green, blue, yellow, orange and purple and made this card.
For the background, I took a piece of scrap baby blue card stock and blended 5 different distress inks to create a sky and some grass.  The colors were from top to bottom (Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China, Cracked Pistachio, Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn).  And, I used the “Sending you Sunshine” stamp to add a sentiment to my card.

I wasn’t sure that all 6 rainbow pieces would fit on the card, so originally I left off the blue rainbow piece, but then after I layered my panel onto a bright yellow card stock and then onto the white card base, I added the blue piece onto the rainbow which I think helps balance the blue in the sky.
Some yellow beads and also sequins in yellows, golds, silver, clear and white finished off the card.
