Make it Monday #99: Repeats & Rainbows

I will admit I hoard my Papertrey Ink cardstock scraps, so had quite a few pieces to work with when I saw the Make It Monday #99: Repeats & Rainbows challenge to use one of the 6 rainbow color schemes Nichole Heady created, along with a repeated die cut or stamped image on a card. The link will take you to all the color schemes and a tutotrial on Nichole's blog.

For this card, I used color scheme 5.


Each color is cut with the thicker chevron border die and adhered to form a rainbow block of color. 

I love versatile sentiments - this card could be use for a graduation, new job, retirement or any reason for a celebration, including a birthday. This sentiment is from PTI's Birthday Bash Sentiments and inked with Memento Espresso Truffle ink. 

Thanks for stopping by,
