White on White.......with a splash of a rainbow!

Two cards today, the same design but with different colours.

The Poppystamps Challenge this month is 'Rainbow Wishes' and the Memory Box Challenge is Celebrating Birthdays, so I decided to make my two cards with these challenges particularly in mind.

I wanted to make the first one a mainly White on White card, with just a touch of the colours of the rainbow.  Looking through my dies, I found my Memory Box 'Blooming Poppy' die had six flowers and one butterfly in the design, perfect for the seven colours of the rainbow.  I used the die with white card and used snippets card the colours of the rainbow to die cut the flower heads and the butterfly.  More snippets of the coloured card were used to die cut the letters, using Memory Box 'Alphabet Soup' dies, remembering to keep the colours in the right order.  A white Poppystamps 'Picket Fence' die cut was added over the base of the flowers and  a MFT  'Fresh Cut Grass' die cut finished of my card. The whole scene was assembled on a square piece of white card, slightly smaller than the card blank, before attaching it to the front of the card. 

I am joining the following challenges with this card:
Poppystamps Challenge #33 ~ Rainbow wishes
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 285 and 286

My second card was made with more traditional colours.

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:
Memory Box Challenge #25 ~ Celebrating Birthdays
HLS June Anything Goes with Dies Challenge
Allsorts Challenge Week 419 ~ Use at least two dies

These are both great cards, particularly like the white on white - just right for using up Snippets and well done for getting the colours in the right order with the letters, probably a fiddle but worth it!!

Di said...

Wonderful snippets card Liz - great way to use up lots of little snippets and very cleverly thought out as well. Love the second card too, but the first one wins by a narrow margin.

Hugs
