ROY G BIV... Birthday

Hello Readers,

For today I am playing along with Freshly Made Sketches. It is very colorful and perfect for a birthday card. Here is my card for today.. Enjoy!

Unusual color layout. stenciled circles using Distressed Inks
(Barn Door, Musturd Seed, and Salty Ocean)
Raising the squares to create a bit more interest and
accentuate the sketch.
Close up of the diamonds. The circles were sponged all together then I die cut them
Using the negative space the die cut left behind, 
it made for a nice template to place my diamond.
Challenges Entered:
Freshly Made Sketches: FMS229

I love rainbows.. In fact when I was a little girl my room was a pastel rainbow color. That is of course until I was a teenager and had to have all my Led Zeppelin posters covering my walls. And of course completely messing up my rainbow decor. There was one poster that was a rainbow AND feely. Humm let me check to see if I can find it.. Hold on... 1min. 37sec. later...

and there we have it!! Oh my goodness...

Anyway I do hope you have a great day and hope this may have sparked some memories of your childhood room.. I certainly did the trick for me..

All the best,

This is such a great sketch design you've used. Very modern and loving the rainbow colours. Fabulous how you've raised parts of the squares and genious to use circles on a square, very creative x

I love what you did with the sketch and I also love the rainbow. We moved a lot so I had a lot of different bedrooms, but none were rainbow! Thanks for sharing!

This looks amazing, Shawna and big congrats on the Princess!!!! Your colourful squares are so beautiful and cleverly done with the circles and the die cut centres!!!! And I love how you've done the sentiment in white on the black strip and the added thin white strip is brilliant!!! The rhinestones add such a lot to make this a wonderful card, my friend!!!!
