I loved this picture and saying I found on Pretty Little Studio's blog this week. I am a great lover of rainbows and I thought the saying was really inspiring. Since the good old Kentucky Derby is this Saturday, it reminded me of all of the festivities going on in Louisville that I grew up watching. One of my favorites was the hot air balloon race.
I saw a similar card on the demonstrator website, Stampin' Connection and I knew when I saw this picture on the PLS blog I wanted to make something with those ideas!
To make this card I started with a Soft Suede card base and found some scraps from the colors of the rainbow (ROY G. BIV, my friends!). I cut each scrap to 1/2" in height and glued them on from the bottom to the top.
Next, I took a scrap of white paper and stamped some clouds on it in Tempting Turquoise. I stamped all of the hot air balloon bottoms on the white paper. I stamped the orange balloon on the base paper and stamped the striped and the red balloon on scraps and cut them out, adhering them with stampin' dimensionals. I finished off the card with a bitty punch and rhinestone and a matching daffodil button.
