Taste the Rainbow

Ha!  I'm posting!  I have gone through a dry spell of card making but not for lack of trying.  So glad I finally put something together I didn't want to immediately burn.  I'm sure you've had times like that too.  A Halloween project I'm working on for a party had reinvigorated my mojo.  Yes!

For this card, I diecut the sentiment thrice out of a leftover watercolored panel, taking care to keep the rainbow (can't help but think of "taste the rainbow"--damn you, Skittles ads!) in proper sequence.  I then diecut the thanks from the card front and ran that through a cloud embossing folder before nestling the rainbow thanks in there.  I rounded a corner and sprinkled on a few sequins for good measure.  Ooh, and I added a lot of Glossy Accents to the sentiments to make them fab shiny.

The Details:  Simon Says Thanks die, Paper Studio clouds embossing folder, Recollections white cardstock, Pretty Pink Posh sequins

I'm entering this in Less Is More #191 Mostly Words, Simon Says Anything Goes, and Keep It Simple #49 No Stamps


  1. Nothing gets me going like the rainbow colors! This is FABULOUS, Toni! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge!

  2. Gotta love rainbows and this jumped out at me from the Gallery at LIM. Love all those glossy 'thanks' and the embossed clouds are so crisp. Fantabulous! And I totally know about the whole 'loss of Mojo' feeling. Its horrible but amazing how one thing can spark your brain back on again. So good to see you back!!

  3. Very pretty card and we all know that missing mojo feeling!
