Close to My Heart Color Dare Challenge #5

I am back from vacation, YEEEEHAW!  And just in the nick of time for another Color Dare!  This week, we are supposed to pick six shades of the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

 The colors I chose to work with are Tulip, Sunset, Honey, Topiary, Pacifica, and Pansy Purple.  These are the most "true" to the rainbow that I wanted to use.  I also used white and black as my neutrals.
 I cut out a french fry box at 9 inches from the Art Philosophy Cartridge on black cardstock.  I also cut out the flower shape x 3 to use with the June Stamp of the Month, Life is Tweet.  I had really wanted to use my Eclectic Edges Stamp Set, so decided to make a rainbow of layers on the outside of the box, keeping the inside nice and dark for the flower to really POP!
 A bit of the black polka-dot ribbon round finished off the edge nicely.  I could really think of nothing better to complete the rainbow effect than some Fruity Tootsie Roll midets!  One of my faves!  Love how this turned out, and really enjoying the challenges each week too.
Today was really productive thank goodness and I made tons of thank you cards for birthday gifts.  Can't wait to share them with you!  In the meantime...remember...Stampaganza is over when June is gone, so get your buy 2 get one free stamps while you can!

Oh wow!!!  I just realized I have 60 followers now!  Thanks you guys, and always feel free to leave some love!

  4. Oh Amie, This is just so cute and cheery! Love all the colors and the border stamps. I don't even know if I've even noticed them in the Idea Book. I may have to use a few different border stamps I have on hand since I can't buy anymore stamps for a while :)

  8. Love how you used Eclectic Edges. I just placed an order and was debating about getting that stamp set. Now that I see what you've done with it, it makes me wish I'd ordered it!

    1. Oh, thanks, Cheryl! I took a chance when I ordered mine because borders are so tricky for me...I need to find some good pointers on how to get them straight.

  9. I love how you made the colors pop with the inside dark with the colored flowers and then the rainbow of edges on the white. Great job and thanks for the inspiration!
