Be Happy Today

Hi there blog friends ~
Just a really quick post today. I created this card for 2 challenges:

Hero Arts Challenge for a 'Rainbow of Color Birthday' theme, and since the 'Cue Card’ this week at CASology  is 'Bold’, I thought the bold colors of the rainbow and contrast of black and white on the sentiment would work perfectly. 





I used the diagonal stripes die to add the rainbow of colors and my new Hero Arts stamp for my sentiment. I love how white embossing pops against the black.


Well, that’s it for me. I hope everyone is well and safe with all the snow and cold weather we’re experiencing on the east coast of the U.S. right now. Thanks so much for stopping by,
Barb

What a great way to incorporate the rainbow into your card, the stitch lines are subtle but really make all the difference, love it Barb!
