CYCI Challenge # 139 - Rainbow

This week we have a super colorful challenge going on over at Can You Case It.  It is a rainbow challenge.  Here is my card that I created for this challenge.  It is rather colorful isn't it?  It was a great way to use up a lot of scraps of paper.  I cut 1/4" strips of several different colors of paper and glued them to a sheet of white card stock.  I then cut out the background die in white and adhered it to the front of my colors.  Then using a border die, which I cut from both black and white paper, I stamped the sentiment onto the white portion and glued that at the bottom.  I placed the entire piece onto a black base card which measures 5 x 6.5".  I will need to make a custom envelope for this card, but really liked the black border around the busy focal point.  What do you think?

Why not stop by this week and show off your colors!!!  We would love to see what you come up with.

Thanks for stopping by!
See you next time!
