TRR Challenge #40 'Over the Rainbow'

Welcome friends to another fun fortnightly challenge at The Ribbon Reel!  It's Pauline's turn to host this week.

Pauline has chosen this bright and beautiful inspiration photo .....


and ask that you create a card / project with all the COLOURS of the RAINBOW,
plus RIBBON & TWINE in the photo.

Here is my card...

I decided to checkout Pinterest for some 'rainbow' inspiration and found so many beautiful cards.  I decided to use strips of ribbon on this card, of course in the colours of the rainbow.

I'm lucky enough to have a huge selection of ribbons at my fingertips to choose from.  I decided to use a different type ribbon for each colour.  I managed to use 12 different types; red pom pom trim, red twill, orange mesh, orange mini ric rac, yellow gingham frill, yellow burlap cord, celery green stripe twill, green grosgrain, blue satin, blue velvet, purple gingham, purple stitch grosgrain.  

I created a quick flower from the yellow gingham ruffle ribbon and added a a red tea rose and light violet cherry blossom, along with a blue candy stripe button and red polka dot button.  The card looked a bit bare in the middle so I decided to add a kraft butterfly using my PTI die.  The sentiment is also from PTI.

Don't forget to check out the colourful cards created by the rest of the design team.
Supplies used:
Stamps / Die - PTI Butterfly Die, PTI Love Lives Here Stamp
