Holy cow...Top 5!!

I am excited and thrilled and shocked to say that I made it to the Top 5 of the Practical Scrappers card contest!! There have been so many wonderful cards displayed over the last few weeks. Thank you for all your votes so far, they are so appreciated! I seriously never thought I would make it this far.

This week we needed to create a card using a rainbow as inspiration and that included dry embossing. I pulled out all my Papertrey Ink cardstock colors and started pulling what I needed to complete a rainbow. I don't have any embossing dies, so I decided to use my Scorpal to create score lines as my background.



I punched 1 inch circles from all the cardstock colors and made rolled flowers for each rainbow layer. I painted stickles inside each flower for a little bit of glitter and shine. And I couldn't resist adding some baker's twine!


Now is your chance to head over to Practical Scrappers and check out the other amazing top 5 cards. Each one is wonderful, I really loved seeing what everyone did with the rainbow inspiration this week. Don't forget to vote for your favorite!!

Thanks for all your support and for stopping by today!! Happy Monday!
