You are the rainbow in my cloud

Hi there!

Since I started card making and blogging I became more aware that time gets measured and goes by not only in days, weeks and months, but also in seasons ... and not only 4 weather seasons, many others!

I mentioned in an earlier post that I love 'Valentine season' . Close on the heels of the season of love, comes 'rainbow' season! A few rainbow challenges going on right now, so I am taking advantage of the šŸŒˆinspiration.

A closer look:

I used a cutting file from APEX Cuttables called Rain pack . 

The pack includes a whole bunch of cutting files of which I used the umbrella and cloud for today's card.

I used the print and cut function in my Silhouette studio, and printed the little umbrella in black, colored the polka dots with my Promarkers.
The hearts were die cut (Spellbinders die) and also colored with Promarkers. Just easier to cut a lot at one time from white card stock and color them according to your needs when you need it .

I also created the sentiment in the Silhouette Studio, and you are welcome to download and use it :

The challenges I mentioned earlier:

Simon says stamp Monday challenge ~ Make a rainbow

Cas-ualfridays ~ Rainbow

Time out challenges  ~ When it rains look for rainbows, when it's dark look for stars'
