PPP Rainbow Challenge and Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop entry

Today I'm combining two challenges:  the Pretty Pink Posh Rainbow Challenge and the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

Here is the inspiration photo for the PPP Challenge:

                               Pretty Pink Posh: Rainbow Challenge
My card is inspired by Shannon's  (the sequin rainbow).

The image and top sentiment are from Create a Smile's Coffee First stamp set.  The bottom sentiment is from Create a Smile's Monster party stamp set.  I've colored using Zig watercolor brushes and added Pretty Pink Posh sequins to the left side of the cup.  Tim Holtz watercolor paper was used, and the die is Pretty Pink Posh's Scalloped Rectangles. A black card base was used, with a white liner to allow for writing inside the card.

The Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop has asked for summer-themed cards, and the bright rainbow reminds me of a summer day.

 Thank you for taking a look, and don't forget to check out the other amazing cards at both blogs!

Rainbow Card Challenge

I am excited to be participating in the Rainbow blog hop set up by Sandy Allnock. This is based on The Rainbow Card Challenge which was started by Dawn Woleslagle from Wplus9.  Dawn created a card using a rainbow of colors and then challenged 2 friends to do the same.  Those 2 friends tagged 2 more friends, etc, and here we are.

I've made a simple rainbow card with Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor pens. Tim Holtz's Distress Watercolor cardstock was used for the background, clouds, and rainbow.
