PP385 A Pop of Rainbow Color

Happy Sunday, everyone!  Nance is our hostess with the mostest at the Paper Players and she has a happy challenge:

Wow, so many possibilities, but I had to remember that it was CLEAN AND SIMPLE!!  I remembered purchasing this Right at Home stamp set at a stamp show a couple of years back, so I dusted it off and stamped it on some white cardstock:

I used the FMS sketch for this week:

and colored in my word; I have to admit, I had a little trouble getting this to ink up nicely...I have lots of fuzzies on it...and my markers are in real need of replacement!!! I am used to using the Blends, and these are well-loved and well-worn!  I didn't use all the rainbow colors, but I think these are close enough:  Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Garden Green and Pacific Point:

I added a little red heart and a washi tape banner, then finally added "when skies are gray" as my horizontal sentiment.  It's a little awkward if you don't read it in the right order, but hopefully the recipient will understand, LOL!  

I hope you'll play along with our rainbow challenge!  I couldn't help thinking that this would have been great for St Patrick's Day---a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!  But the DT has come up with some other awesome ways to use these rainbow colors!  Check them out:

Great card Leeann, I don't think the (great) sentiment is awkward at all and a fine job of color blending on the word Color!
Lovely pictures of your family as well, such good lookin' gals!
