For the challenge TLC472 Rainbows Before Gold
and for my SIL's (Sarah) birthday
This card is so WAY out of comfort zone it isn't even funny! BUT I have always loved rainbows and at one time even decorated with them (in the 80's) and had a complete line of clothing and accessories in rainbows.
I made and remade this card about 6 times...then I spritzed in all the colors I used. I made a Bakers Twine bow in all the colors (this is Peggy not knowing when to stop) but decided against it in the light of day. I decided to photgraph it outside this morning because the light was difused with a light overcast. I added the little yellow plastic things, they are not pearls... and if anyone has a real name for them, please tell me.
I tried to find an image that had not yet been used (I haven't checked the gallery this morning so that may not be true). I have always loved this Tim Holtz clear set with the birds. Oh...I also tried to stamp a tree and put different colored birds in it....NOT... I didn't have the right tree or the right birds! I also tried (this is in addition to the 6 times I stamped this one) a flourish stamp in a circle also NOT good...
I woke up this morning with a variety of colors on my hands, and a wastebasket full of colorful discards! All in all, a good time was had... even it took me about 6 hours to create this challenge card. :-)

Peggy, I LOVE this! What a wonderful take on this challenge and I love those birds too! Kudos to you for trying it. I feel your pain about the 6 hour card. What an awesome sentiment you chose for this.

Your beautiful birds are wheeling across a shimmering sky! This is one of those cards that looks as good in the thumbnail as in the full size version. I'm so happy you persevered to create this lovely card. As others have said, that sentiment is terrific!
