Rainbow Ellie Card (Avery Elle)

Happy Pi Day and welcome to my blog!  Thanks for coming by!

I have had this idea of making a rainbow kids' card for a while, and a variety of challenges helped pull it all together today.  Rainbow, Animals and Stars!  I thought that Clean and Simple was the way to go, considering the glitter I wanted to use (even though it is so difficult to photograph!)

(Click on photos to enlarge to better quality)

I adhered the glitter ribbon to a strip of cardstock and then trimmed the edges.  The Elephant and star balloon were paper pieced, one with patterned paper and one with just another that I colored with chalks.  

The repeated sentiment is so cute, and it happened by mistake. I wasn't happy with how straight the first stamping was, so I added the two second-generation stamping to even it out.  Some evidence that mistakes can be opportunities!

Supplies: Avery Elle Ellie Stamp set, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Pebbles Chalk, My Mind's Eye Hootenanny Paper, American Crafts glitter ribbon

I would love to participate in the following challenges:

I really appreciate your visit!

What a cute and fun card, and the glitter ribbon looks much easier to use than the loose stuff! LOL Sparkly fun!

Heidi wonderful card, looks so cute and I have to admit when I saw that glitter my first thought on seeing that glitter was 'wow' how did she get the glitter for each section so perfect and even. Have never seen anything like it and it is so eye catching. The triple stamped sentiment is a brilliant saved an idea I will need to keep in mind for my often crooked stamping. Perfect card for all three challenges.

A glittered rainbow, star balloon, and an elephant - I am totally in love with this card! Your solution with the sentiment was great!

Rainbow, glitter and an Avery Elle elephant all in one card = the perfect combination for sure!
