AYSI223 Branch of Rainbows

Hi peeps!  Yay, it's Friday, and time for another As You See It challenge!!  This is a fun one...check out this cute inspiration prompt:

No photo description available.

I had several ideas for this challenge, but in the end went with a very simple design that I really loved:

I have a small die that cuts out four different birds, so I cut some out of Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue, Blueberry Bushel and Gorgeous Grape, then perched them on a Crumb Cake branch, cut using the Seasonal Layers die:

My sentiment, stamped in Smoky Slate, is from an Inky Antics set called Songbird:

I mounted it on a Basic Black card base and added a white panel on the inside; it was stamped with a retired Cornish Heritage Farm birthday sentiment, and I added a couple more birds for fun:

 And for this Good Friday, I'll leave you with these verses from Genesis, chapter 9:  

12 And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: 13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. 16 Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”

What a beautiful way to remember what the rainbow signifies!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I've only recently started checking in with you again.... and been reminded why I've followed you for the past ten years! This is an amazing card! I wish I knew what die you used. More important than that I've followed Dana and Cassidy all these years and am so thrilled that their lives seem to be working out so well. They are treasures in your life! Many blessings for all of you on this Mother's Day.
