Sunshine and rainbows

Its 2019 and I'm back into the swing of things in my craft room!

There's a whole new Ideas Book full of amazing goodies, and this beautiful striped paper immediately caught my eye. Paired with rainbows, it was just the happy pop of colour I needed to get my crafting mojo started for the year.

I used the sketch from Atlantic Hearts to create a cheerful rainbow card.

The paper and the rainbow chipboard piece were a perfect pairing with this sentiment from the January Stamp of the Month.  I added some holographic sequins for extra sparkle and texture.

I am also entering this card into Double Trouble Challenge #18- pairing the circular sequins with squares and rectangles, plus linking up with Atlantic Hearts. I also think this fits the optional twist of birds, as the song "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" has a line about birds flying over the rainbow.

Thanks for stopping by on my first post of 2019 and I hope to share lots of crafty goodies with you this year.

  1. Nice use of the sketch, and rainbows are such a positive image to send to someone who needs a bit of cheering up.

  2. Very nice way to use the stripes. I love the look, but often find it challenging to pair and image with them. This playful rainbow is the perfect choice. Thanks for joining us at AHSC this week.

  3. Great interpretation of the sketch and love that striped background with your rainbow image. Beautifully done and love it. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble.

  4. What a perfect pair---Your paper and accent piece make a wonderful card. I love the sprinkling of sequins!
