Rainbow Birthday

Taking longer to recover than I expected.  The worst thing is that I can only use the computer for short periods of time making it very hard to catch up on leaving comments.  I was finally able to get a card made just in time for the PTI Anniversary Color Challenge.  Decided to use one of my neglected PTI products: Lovely Layers dies. 
I used the rainbow color combo substituting Memento Love Letter for the Pure Poppy I don't have.  Sure glad I have the ImagineCrafts sponge daubers since the blending sponges are too big for this size stripes.  The embossing folder is one of my favorites: Anna Griffin Feather Illusion.  Boy did it change the look!  The little centers are covered with Stickles Star Dust & black Pico Embellisher dots.  The sentiment is from Heart-2-Heart #2 & it was great to use some of my huge stash of twine!  I'm also entering InkspirationalSSS Wednesday.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

  3. Fabulous card Greta, and that embossed strip really is lovely in adding texture and highlighting your rainbow stripes. As far as commenting goes...just start over when you are feeling better. No one expects you to go back to the ones you missed during your recovery.
