Rainbow goodness...

Hello again!

So did you make the most of the leap day yesterday? I managed to get a few more things checked off the ol' to-do list and then relaxed a bit on the computer as I was avoiding the snow and cold. All in all not too shabby.

My card today may not use a stamp that I haven't colored up before but when I found Punk Kaylee's head all colored up from a hair coloring video I did way back in September and Flower Kaylee's body just waiting to be finished, I figured it was time to get her on a card. This combination of Kaylees brought to mind a free spirited artsy kind of gal so I ran with that theme on the rest of the card. I used the 'B' sides from a bunch of the Basic Grey Picadilly papers to create the rainbow colored background and then added the flower print below because it helped tie all of the different colors together. That was all looking fine and good but I decided to take the artsy theme a bit further so I printed out the sentiment and drew the painter's palette around it with the paint brush as a finishing touch. I think she looks pretty happy to have finally made it off the desk, LOL!

Well, I suppose I should go get ready for the day... chat at'cha later. :)
