Just popping in quickly to show you a box card I made for a birthday, inspired by the fun inspiration image over at Just Us Girls, cutting it a bit tight with the deadline but better late than never! I'm also linking up with Lawn Fawnatics where the theme is Cards for kids, Make My Monday where the theme is Lazy Days of Summer and Shopping Our Stash where the theme is Your Favourite Season (I keep changing my mind constantly about this, but right now when summer is slipping away I'm convinced it's my favourite season). Last but not least I'm linking up with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge where Anything Goes.
I saw the most amazing rainbow today. It was absolutely pouring down when I left work, and the sky was black, but as I drove out onto the motorway the sun was shining brightly and I could see such a vibrant rainbow in the sky. Such a shame I had to focus on driving the car so I couldn't devote my full attention to the gorgeous sight.
I created the box card using the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card die and the Watercolor Wishes paper, the pastel colours perfect for a happy flamingo scene. I stamped the happy flamingoes from Flamingo Together and the big palm trees from Critters From the Past, coloured them with Copics and die cut using the matching dies. I also die cut some smaller palm trees using the dies from Flamingo Together and decorated the box with die cuts from the Scalloped Box Card die set. I also added the sun and clouds from Spring Showers and the rainbow I cut from coloured card using the Rainbow die. Last, I added some bunting to the palm trees and the sentiment which I die cut from Perfectly Plaid Winter paper using the Cole's ABC dies.
