It's a Rainbow kinda day!

Before I start on my rainbow card for today, I would like to welcome Trudy O'Bar to my team. Trudy signed up for the great $99 kit this past weekend..........welcome Trudy!! We are going to have so much fun!!

I had some clouds left over from my "On Board Merry Medley Kit" and I decided to use them today to help in creating a rainbow card:

There are times when I have all these ideas in my head and I can't seem to keep up with everything else to just sit down and experiment. Well today I took the time. I started out with 5 different colors for my rainbow. I used my "2-1/2" Circle Punch" and punched slivers about 1/4" wide with my punch. When you lay them all beside each other, they all fit perfectly like the colors of a rainbow.

The clouds were quite easy also. I used Whisper White Cardstock, embossed it with the "Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder" and then glued my pre-cut clouds to the back. Using my "Paper Snips", I hand-cut around the clouds. The help smooth out the edges of my clouds, I slid my "Sanding Blocks" back-and-forth around the edges:

For the background layer I used Baja Breeze Cardstock and stamped the flower image from "Love & Care", a hostess set from the "Summer  Mini Catalog", with VersaMark Ink. Isn't this a quick, cute & easy card?
