Sweet Rainbow Day

I'm having a lot of fun with my Puffy Cloud Dies from Memory Box ... just can't get enough of them!!  Created another summery card using the fun colors from the Throwdown Challenge ... thought they would make a pretty rainbow.  And I love my polkda-dot DP - it just screams cuteness!

Today's card is for three challenges:
Free For All (F4A132 - birthday cards)
Addicted to Stamping CAS #2 Challenge, and
Color Throwdown (CTD207 - Melon Mambo, Barely Banana, Peach Parfait, Gable Green)

I don't have the exact colors of the Throwdown challenge, but substituted ones that looked similar to the inspiration photo. 
Hope you like.

"Sweet Rainbow Day"

Stamps:  Sweet Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White (Neenah); Polka-dot DPs in Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo (SU!)
Ink:  Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Large Classic Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Puffy Cloud dies (Memory Box), glue, adhesives and dimensionals

The rainbow was made using the largest oval and die-cutting pieces from each of the polka-dot DPs.  I then layered them on top of each other and cut away the excess from the bottom and sides.

The clouds are three layers of white cardstock, glued together to form thick dies.  I added faux stitching with a Baja Breeze Stampin' Write marker.
