Sunshine & Rainbows for your Birthday PP385

 Hey there friends!  Welcome to another week with The Paper Players....coming to you on day three of the Disney Volleyball Showcase in Orlando, Florida.  Our daughter's team is 6-0 headed into gold bracket play today, so wish them luck! :-)  This week I am tickled pink to be the Clean-and-Simple challenge hostess with a bright and colorful challenge...
Rainbow!!  Anything with a rainbow, rainbow element, or rainbow colors.  I went very literal with my take on the challenge:
 The Sunshine & Rainbows stamp set and coordinating dies made quick work of this clean-and-simple card.  A thick Whisper White card base and a few white die-cuts from the Rainbow Builder Framelits.  Once I made a straight cut on the main panel of clouds, it was the perfect place for this sweet sentiment.
 I played around with some cardstock colors to get just the right combination of ROYGBIV.  The Rainbow Builder Framelits nest perfectly with each other.  Here I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Tempting Turquoise, Island Indigo, and Rich Razzleberry.  TIP: After cutting place the rainbow arches face down on a piece of Press-n-Seal wrap and then tape them together with your favorite tear tape.  You can peel the whole rainbow off the press and seal wrap and position it on your project.
 Here's to wishing you a sunny day from Orlando!  Do go check out all the the fabulous inspiration from my teammates at The Paper Players.....I hope you're inspired to play along with us before the challenge ends on Friday, March 22nd at Noon (PST).  Thanks for stopping by!

This is a difficult challenge for me but I think I'll give it a try later. Thanks for stretching me...CAS isn't easy but it should be! All the cards done by the team are great.

Nance... CAS perfection! Both you and Joanne made such perfect rainbows! Love how you embedded the rainbow into the clouds...such fun!

So great minds think alike this week Nance!! Can't quite believe how similar our cards are - yours is definitely more CAS though, well done! I love the cut away on your front cloud layer - a small detail but neater than going to the bottom of the card I think. Such an awesome challenge - off to CASE your inside now ;-) Hope the girls enjoyed a successful weekend of volleyball in Orlando - I can almost feel the warmth of the sun in that lovely team photo!

Awesome creation, Nance! The sentiments in this set are so pretty! I love the little tip about the Press 'n Seal...I use that to corral my little diecut pieces on my projects too!

It's been really interesting to see you and Joanne make cards with the same set but have them turn out differently. I like the way the white clouds on a white ground really focus the eye on the rainbow and that, in turn, draws you to the sentiment. Really CAS and pretty.

CAS perfection! I love the nestled rainbow in the clouds and those sparkly little raindrops. Such a happy card! Hope you're having a great week ~ Hugs, Annie

Of course I love your beautiful rainbow Nance, but also how you layered up your card while still maintaining lots of white space. Those tiny crystal raindrops are the perfect finishing touch. I really enjoyed this challenge, and the gallery is full of bright, happy creations!

Congratulations to Arden and her beautiful teammates! SO exciting!
Your card is just fabulous! I ordered this die set and never used it. Your card has inspired me. Such a fun challenge and so many great ideas to incorporate rainbows. Those fluffy clouds are perfect! I hope you are having a great week, My Friend! XX
