Red and Yellow and Pink and Green...

Good Morning all!

It certainly has been a rainbow of colours this week, I never thought I would use Bright orange, Black, White and Silver in the same card however yesterday It actually happened!  Today I am going back to the beginning of the rainbow and back to basics with a simple card!

Todays card Demonstrates my love of spellbinders Labels dies, this one is Labels 18 (Thanx Margaret for informing me of which one it was)

I started by cutting #4 die in the range out of a cream piece of cardstock and mounting an embossed piece of scrap in Red behind it.  Next I cut 2 frames 1 in red, 1 in cream using die #4 and #5.  Then I cut 2 more, in the same colours using die #4 and #3 (sounds complicated but it's not!

These were layered up, using foam squares, interlocking starting with red, then cream and so on.  I rotated each different layer which I feel changes the shape and gives more possibilities.

The Leaves are Spellbinders Foliage and are inked through the die and the flowers are handmade by Wendy (so don't know which die sorry)  Sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse and sums up what I would say to all my blog visitors, especially those who comment, Thanks for being there!

I hope you have enjoyed this weeks rainbow, maybe it's green next week....Enjoy...
