Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop - Monochrome Rainbow Challenge


Hello everyone and welcome to my blog today for the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop - and what a fun event we have for you today. A monochrome Rainbow Challenge!

As per the above chart, I fall into the green category which I was happy about! I needed to make a card for my teenage nephew so I decided to combine the two projects and this is the card I created. 

I used a real mix of products on this card, not intentionally, but I just used what I had on my desk at the time in between my classes as I had left making the card until the last minute! 

The base card is pear pizzazz layered with a piece of pear pizzazz embossed with the stitched leaves dies. Then I added layers of papers - bermuda bay cardstock, subtles dsp and ice cream corner dsp. The circle die is from the painted labels dies and was die cut in soft sea foam cardstock.

The sentiment comes from the In Bloom stamp set then due cut using one of the dies from the Tasteful Labels dies.
