A Happy Hello

Pretty Pink Posh: Rainbow Challenge
Fun challenge at Pretty Pink Posh--Pick a DT card to inspire a rainbow creation.  I've been wanting to make a card with a series of border dies, so I picked the second card.  I used the scalloped border from PPP Stitched Borders 3.  I inked a scrap of white cardstock with these 5 Memento colors: Love Letter, Morocco, Dandelion, Cottage Ivy & Nautical Blue.  Those inks are so easy to sponge--love them!  
Decided to add the little bow from PPP Twine & Bows (Blog Candy from Cat), so I sponged another scrap.  I die cut 3 bows of each color & covered the top one with Diamond Glaze & a dot of Crystal Stickles which also embellishes the scallop edges.  The fun Hero Arts sentiment is from the 2009 Happy Hello set.  I used my Mini MISTI to get a good inking with Versafine Vintage Sepia.  The panel is mounted with foam tape & the bottom corners are rounded. Simple, CAS card, but fun to make!  I'm also entering CropStop, HLS Anything Goes with Dies, The PlaygroundDie Cut DivasVirginia's View & Word Art Wednesday

Our last camping trip had a variety of weather, but anytime you can wear short sleeves at the Oregon Coast, you know it's a good day--haha! There was enough sun Fritz chose to take his nap in the shade of hubby's chair.  We got home to find this gorgeous rose which I promptly brought into the house. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  1. This is GREAT. I love the ideaof the scallop borders likea ruffle of colours and those bows are darling.

    You look relaxed in your camping photos. We have only been out twice this year as I have been busy with my Mum so poorly. I am visiting her for a week soon and then we will go up to the RV fo rtwo weeks after. I am packing card kits to take...hope to get many cards finished...I am running low as I have not been crafting much...just blogging cards I had already made and not posted yet.

  22. The happy rainbow colors of these scallops borders are so pretty. Love the tiny matching bows too. The set of borders looks splendid against the neutral card background, and like the rounded borders with this design too. Enjoyed seeing the pictures of your trip, and that rose is just gorgeous. Love that shade of the rose too. TFS & Hugs

  32. How fun your rainbow card is, Greta! A happy hello, indeed! Your camping photos are fabulous; we need some 'summer sun', especially since my husband is racing (finally) tomorrow! I'm the chief official for the event and will quite enjoy being in a car staying warm and dry, following a group. Poor riders if the rain comes down...as long as everyone stays upright, it's all good!
