Rainbow Hi

Hello, I have a few cards today to make up for the lag in between posts :0) The other day I was flipping through the latest issue of Paper Crafts magazine looking for something to do with the many colors of squares that have collected in my scraps drawer, and when I saw this card, I died! It's perfect, so bright and happy for this time of year. I had to change mine a little bit; I used the red ribbon instead of two colors of baker's twine and mine says "hi" rather than "baby" but that's pretty much the only difference.

Isn't this little girl the cutest!! She's a digi stamp available on ColorQ, and was created for the fund raiser Mission 4 Macie (you have to scroll down a ways). She is so fun to color cause you can use such bright, fun colors! My colors are celery, rose red, and saffron. The other stamps are from the older SU set Sweet Shapes.

This card is very much based on a sample I found in one of my old issues of Stampin' Success that I had been wanting to copy for some time now. I like how they folded the wrapper to make it look more realistic and give it dimension. The top is cut from felt also for texture and then some glitter was added to the back of a clear button using Crystal Effects for added color and interest. The sentiment is a Verve stamp from the set Big Wish. My colors are confetti white, kraft, and plum.

Thanks for stopping by!
