Stretch those Dies!

Good morning everyone. I would like to show you a card that I made last night. I actually had one of those lightbulb moments. I had looked at the sketch over at ShowCASe your Style for a few days and really wasn't sure what to do and then an idea just came to me so off I went into the craft room.

Here is my card

My first idea didn't work out. I created my rainbow using watercolours but didn't like the end result. I wished I had a die that would just cut strips for me but I didn't have that either and then I remembered I had a Window Box die that would do the trick. I cut out my pieces from different coloured paper and mounted them on my light blue panel and then assembled the rest of the card.

The Stitched Rectangle die is from Lil' Inkers as is the sentiment. I used my Stitched Hillside Border die from Lawn Fawn to create my gap.

The little raindrops are from PTI.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges

613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes with optional colour twist
The Corrosive Challenge - Add a Splash of Colour

Thanks so much for looking xx
