Hello friend - Always Fun #156

Monday March 30, 2020

Hello.. I have a card that I made for the challenge going on over at Always Fun Challenge #156 
Our theme this week is RAINBOW


So with my card I decided to go with the Rainbow colors vs. an actual rainbow.. I took a bunch of rainbow scrap colors and cut them to various widths and adhered them down to a scrap of paper. I then die cut the Paper Trey Ink phone and Simon Says Sentiments stamped with Stampin Up ink.  I layered the phones 4 times and then using the Stampin up heart die cut out the stripe heart and sentiment heart. I then added them to the card base. I added some gems to the phone base. I laugh when I see this phone as that is the type of phone I grew up with. That is also why I did it in black as that was the colors that the rotary phones came in.

My time to craft #428 - off the edge
Word art Wednesday wk. 432-433 - anything goes
Fab n funky #474 - masculine
