Missing You

The Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge has a gorgeous inspiration photo this time around and I couldn't help but play along.

I've always loved rainbows. They've always fascinated me because they're just a little bit magical. Even though I know how they're formed now (refracted light and all that), they still hold just a little bit of wonder.

I went traditional with this card and created an actual rainbow. I used Simon Says Stamps Stitched Circle dies and then cut them in half after nesting them together. Instead of having clouds at the end of the rainbow, I used a white sentiment strip to mimic it. I kept it simple with just a few sequins this time.

While I'm at it, I'm going to go ahead and enter this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge as well. I love Anything Goes week! I'm also going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which has the theme of Summer.
