Rainbows and Clouds

I am so excited to finally be able to share this card with you using the newest Rainbow and Cloud dies from
Lil' Inker Designs!  I have the pinwheel die too and LOVE it!  Laura is such a sweetheart......and she ships super fast!  Let's get on with the card!



I went for a more pastel approach with this set.  You have got to check out the stamp set that you get when you order the dies!  The variety of sentiments and that font??  Love it!  Now did you notice that the clouds are perforated for that extra special touch?  I love that.  I have several cloud dies and these by far are my favorite!


Next up, I wanted to stamp some of those clouds to make my own paper.  So I die cut some clouds out of fun foam and stamped away with my Fresh Snow ink!  Even the perforations showed up! 

Now, this next picture has NOTHING to do with cardmaking except it's why I was gone over the weekend and didn't get any stamping done!  My husband works for 94.5 Country and they were the title sponsor of the Country Stampede this year!  Brad Paisley was the headliner Saturday night along with Blake Shelton!  Both were unbelievably awesome!!  Yes, this is a picture my husband took.  We were able to get close to the stage that extended into the crowd and were literally only feet from him!



Now this next picture I took as I got to sit ON stage with Lady Antebellum!!!  What a fun time that was!  It wasn't the best sound sitting up there but to be up close like that while they perform?  Priceless.  They were the headliner for Friday night. 


Well, that's it for me today!  Have a great one!

OK...
I know who Brad Paisley is...
if I'm not mistaken he would living about 20-25 minutes away...
as most country stars are...
but my tastes run to Def Leppard...
and 80's hair metal bands :)
But an awesome shot!
I was once that close to David Coverdale (Whitesnake)...
uuggghhh!
That man's wrinkles had their own addresses...
and that was over 20 years ago!
And I absolutely LOVE this card!
That rainbow and clouds...
yummy!!
Thanks for enabling :)
