Paper Smooches + Simon Says

Paper Smooches Sparks challenge blog has a Picture Perfect challenge this week. Let's just say all I saw was a rainbow of color in this photo!

I pulled out my stamps and was immediately drawn to the "thanks" in the Chit Chat set because I knew I could rainbow color the letters. 

At first I had the rainbow of diamond/chevron/arrows circling the sentiment stamped on the white panel, but there was too much awkward white space - not the good kind of white space.  I cut the sentiment into an oval and mounted in on dark grey cardstock (I know it looks black in the photo, but it is Smoky Shadow) and then arranged the chevrons again - much happier with this version!

Because Simons Says . . . Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp this week,  this card is also being linked up there.

I'm off to prep Greek Salad for 200 - somehow dear husband's company Open House has ended up on the same night as dear son's 8th Grade Promotion. Why can the calendar be relatively quiet for weeks and everything converges into a couple of days?!

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. A fantastic card - I love your design and how you have used the rainbow of colour - beautifully positioned!!!
