Rainbow Wedding

Hello again ... sorry, just couldn't help myself!
I had two rainbow panels laying on my table that I had created for my previous post ...
well you know I just couldn't set it aside ... I had to create with both of them
plus I've been wanting to die cut the Cheery Lynn Designs wedding die
since I bought it (awhile back!)
I actually think these two paired well together.
I can remember being in my sister's wedding ... the bridesmaids were all in pastel rainbow colors!
YEP ... (back in the late 60s) ... wedding are MUCH different today!!

I have a need for some wedding cards in my stash and I think THIS die will make for some quick & easy cards that will look fabulous!  Maybe more of a 'stained glass' background look ... even an outside scenery photo ... that would be cool!  Okay ... enough thinking out loud!

Here's a few challenges to share in:
Classy Cards n Such - Rainbow of Color
City Crafter's Challenge - Beautiful Rainbow
Pumpkin Spice - Rainbows
Crafty Ribbons Challenge - Anything Goes with a Bow
Craft-Dee Bowz March Challenge - Anything Goes w/handmade Bow
4 Krafty Girls Challenge - Anything Goes
Frilly and Funkie Challenge - Neglected Dies

Thanks for stopping back and hope you like my card.
Oh and I forgot to mention I used my new bow making tool from Craft-Dee Bowz to create my bow today.  I thought I was making a 3 loop bow ... ended up with 4 loops.  Happy to say it came together beautifully and quite easily actually!  
Have a great day/evening!

Love your Rainbow Wedding card, Darlene. I have been skirting around this die from CLD every time I visit Classy Cards N' Such. Guess I will have to break down & purchase it while it is on sale. TFS.

So pretty and how fun it is a theme from your sister's wedding too. Wedding have changed a lot - I kind of wish I could be 22 and get married today - everything is so fun. I go to Hobby Lobby and all the burlap wedding stuff makes me want to buy it - I have one daughter left to get married so I may get a chance! LOL! Cool card. Hugz!
