Gloomies...

Well, I don't have them, but I am ready when someone does.  This little card was inspired by the latest Tuesday Trigger, Rainbow Bright!  I love rainbow colors and have been wanted to put them on a card.  Here is where it lead me.


Starting with a white panel, I stamped my polka dots starting with the red strip first and worked my way to the edges.


Scored three lines and added my sentiment in Latte Chalk ink.


Threaded three Fine Linen buttons to mimic the look of the wood spools.


Lastly, I rounded the top corners and added some Fine Linen grosgrain ribbon, popping the panel up with foam on a white card base.

Here is a look at the inspirational pic:


That's it for me, I hope you have a great day!
