May this Rainbow Brighten Your DAY!!!

Good Aftenoon Everyone, or should I say Good Morning. OH my I am WAY behind schedule today, it was almost 11am when I woke up....!! I never do that but we had a very busy day yesterday and then I was up really late. So I finally got to play today....!!! I made this card for the Treehouse Stamp challenge THT005. We were supposed to use buttons and paper piercing. Also this is for sketch challenge SC236 at SCS.

Before I give you the deets on my card, I wanted to share with you some exciting news. My daughter had soccer tryouts a few weeks ago. Well...she moved up a whole age level. Only four girls out of all the U10 players got to move up to the highest level U12 team. She is soooo excited and I am sooo proud of her. She LOVES soccer!! I wanted to share this exciting news with all my blogging friends. CONGRATS KATELYN!!!

Now back to my card.... I used this fun stamp set from Treehouse Stamps called Little Sunshine. I just LOVE this rainbow!!! I stamped this stamp in Momento Ink colored with copics and used flocking for the clouds. I also inked the edges with real red ink.

I also used

Whisper White Cardstock
Real Red Cardstock
SU Real Red Designer Paper
SU Bashful Blue Designer Paper
SU Ribbon
CB Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
SU Piercing Mat and Tool
Misc. Buttons and String

Thanks everyone for stopping by I hope everyone has a GREAT Thursday!!
