There's nothing prettier than a rainbow... and over at City Crafter Challenge Blog the challenge was "Colors of the Rainbow".  I decided on a design around about 50 mins before the challenge finished this afternoon... and in 15 mins I had my card made~

Rainbow butterflies

I started with Hero Arts Zig Zag background and inked it up with some Colorbox Rainbow ink (given to me by someone who had it for years) I stamped it onto my base card.  I then stamped the sentiment.  Now it was to be an upright, side opening card, but mucked up the placement of the sentiment, so turned it on it's side for a top opening card... actually gives a nice look with the zig zags going sideways.   I stamped three butterflies in the Rainbow ink and cut out.  Added to the card with some silver gems.   Over all I was really pleased with

I am also entering it onto Jay Gee's Nook monthly challenge as the inspirational photo gave me the design idea a few days ago.  Love all the bright colours.

Had a nice surprise in my letter box today... a beautiful Valentine from Greta

Purple Valentine

Isn't is gorgeous.  Thanks a heap Greta.  Here in NZ, Valentine's is not a big celebrations... mainly just couples ~ giving Roses and chocolates...so with Hubby in another country, I didn't think I'd get a Valentine's card.   Wasn't I lucky.  Hope you have a good Valentine's Day.

Still having Blogger issues, so if you've missed visiting, feel free to view my older posts.

A beautiful, colourful card Dawn! I love the way the background zigzags have all the different colours in it. The butteflies look great too.

I have also bought the zigzag stamp and it arrived a few days ago. I haven't had a chance to play with it yet, but I look forward to.
