Sending Sunshine And Rainbows

The theme for the current Just Us Girls Challenge is "RAINBOWS." Oh my heart!!! I am a lover of rainbows :) They make me so happy!!! I even have rainbow trail shoes!!! They're a Merrell design that was inspired by Rainbow Mountain in Peru. Gorgeous! My husband calls me "the rainbow hunter" ;) In the summer months we frequently get late-afternoon thunderstorms, and I'm always running around looking for rainbows---ha!

Here's my card:

I was so excited to finally have a chance to ink up the Brighter Days stamp set from Concord and 9th! It's so super cute and totally fun!

I used Coral Bliss, Minty Mint and Volcano Lake (Altenew) for my rainbow colors---I wanted something more non-traditional. And I kept the rest of the card black and white so the rainbow would really pop :) What do you think???

While I was at it...I made a second version...same layout, different color combo:

These are pretty much my "go-to" rainbow colors these days. But, now I'm thinking I want to make some using bold primary, yellow, blue...hmm. Will probably give that a go later today :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Heading out to take the pup for a walk :) 

Have a wonderful day!!!

  2. Rainbow shoes? That sounds awesome...and speaking of awesome, so are your cards! Love those little bursts of colour against the striped backgrounds! Looks like I'll need that sketched stripes stamp to add to my ever-growing C&9th collection! Thrilled to see you in the JUGS gallery!

  3. LOVE how you put these together - the bright rainbows surrounded by black and white. Such a fun look!
