Rainbow Happy...

Hello!!!  I am having fun today with rainbows!  There are so many awesome challenges going on right now with rainbows that I could not resist!  (Not that I would resist anyway, because I've loved rainbows since I was a little girl... )

So I challenged my inner Taheera Atachia and created this...


This card sort of just came together on its own.  At first I had cut strips of each color of the rainbow from DCWV glitter paper.  I was planning on lining them up and doing something with the happy die.  As I was holding the strips I began playing with different ways the strips could lay and that's when I began laying them diagonally.  But how was I going to get this to lay on a card?  That's when I decided the purple color should be the anchor and go across the card straight, allowing the other colors to fan out behind it.  As I wanted the colors to pop on the cardbase I chose to use black, and I love it!  I then added a little more shine with clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to draw the eyes across the card.

I am entering this into the newest Winnie & Walter Gossip Column with Taheerah Atchia: Spectrum (Seriously this is an amazing read!  I learned so much!)



And also into the Pretty Pink Posh: Rainbow Challenge by Yana's card and the strips she used going down her card, only mine go diagonally instead.

And finally into the Virgina's View Challenge: All About Colors


Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful Saturday!!!
Happy Crafting!
