Rainbow Thanks

 
Today I'm playing along with the most recent CAS on Sunday Challenge: "Sentiment" (use only a sentiment: no image).

I recently purchased the Hinged Thanks Designer Die from Essentials By Ellen and this was a great opportunity to put it to use! Here's what I came up with:


I adhered colored cardstock strips under each letter to create a happy rainbow. Here's a closer look:



I had so much fun making this one that I couldn't resist making another (very similar---just changed up the patterned paper).



I am totally smitten with this die and can't wait to make more cards (and even some tags) with it! I have several ideas I want to try out.

Hope you liked my cards for today.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a fun die this is. I love the rainbow colors behind it and the black papers are a great background for it.

Hey Lisa! For some reason your posts have not been showing up in my reader...goofy blogger! I've missed so many of your incredible cards. Took a run back through and love them all. This one, with the colors behind the letters, is SO creative!! Signed up to follow by email, that should remedy things!
