Smile!

Hi there!

A bright rainbow flower to cheer up a (blue?) Monday.

Mine is not too blue so far, I really hope your's will be great!





The flower was cut with my Silhouette. I decreased the size of each layer by 10%.

I layered it using foam tape to give dimension.

The smile was cut 4 times, and glued together.

I kept the background and embellishments all white to make the rainbow... well blossom ;)


My card is for 2 challenges.

The  2 challenges I started playing at since the early days of my blog 3 years ago!

And both still are on the top of my favorite list.

This week  Less is more are celebrating their 3rd birthday with a rainbow challenge.
Thanks Chrissie, Mandie and now Jen, for always providing fun inspiration and encouraging comments! May there be many more challenges!

I used the sketch from Just us girls to design my card. A great sketch ... which I kept CAS.

                                     

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Have a great week.
