Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog

A dear blog friend Cynthia has started up a new challenge blog on a Thursday. I thought I'd try my best & support her in its early stages. Things havent' gone to plan & Ive been suffering with migraines again. I reckon its because of the icy cold weather we just had as I ran a temp & couldn't keep warm half the week. So Im getting this done & going to bed for a few hours sleep to see if I can get rid as I have a minibook to design & make for my recent weekend away with my team.
The first theme is Acetate & I just happen to have this card half completed using acetate as a window. Sadly the light is poor & you can't pick up the gorgeous gems on the ribbon!!
Stamp is Crafty Individuals. I stamped it twice cut the border off & mounted it around the aperture I cut into the card front. Very simple but effective.
The inside.

I have and love this stamp Paula and it's one of my favourite CI images. You have used it in really clever way. Very nice card. Hope you are feeling better. You mustn't be well to be leaving your crafting on a Saturday. Lol x

Hey, Paula! So sorry to hear your migraines are back. =( Hope you feel better soon. And hope it gets warmer soon. Sorry, have no idea what the weather is like over there. But I guess global warming has something to do with it if, even here in the Philippines, it's weirdly cold.

Love that acetate card and oh my gosh, have been dying to try making a moo card but of course never have the time. Haha.

Feel better soon, love!

SO sorry you have migraines again, Paula. Being warmer would help, wouldn't it. Hope your winter starts easing off soon.

I love your card. I think I'll try this idea as soon as I can - it looks so effective. And when I click on the first image, I can see some of the beading on the ribbon at the top :-)

I hope you're feeling better today Paula - but if this is what you can achieve with a migraine...WOW!

This is very effective, Paula - a great card.

As a fellow migraine sufferer for over 20 years, I fully empathise with you. I started taking daily tablets last year and wow, the release is amazing.

Fab work as per usual.

I'll check out your friends challenge blog and try to join in :-)
