MIM: #99 Repeats and Rainbows

When I saw the card Nichole made with the rainbow scallop and glitter for this week's MIM, I knew I wanted to create a repeating rainbow card. I chose the rainbow color scheme #4 because I thought I would make this card for my granddaughter, Oliva, who just happens to love the color purple.

  This card took quite a long time because I practiced lining up the hearts on scrap paper 3-4 times before I actually got it looking semi balanced. If you look closely, you'll see that I used the Canvas/Linen Impression Plate. (I got the idea from Joyce after seeing her card.)

The sentiment stamp is from  the newly released From All My Heart. I think I will give this card to my daughter for Valentine's day instead of my granddaughter.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

Carol the hearts are perfect for this challenge. I love the Linen & Canvas IP, it is so pretty.

Great diagonal Carol.

I love this card with all those hearts. I can see the IP, as well. Lately, I can't seem to make a card without one of those IP's. I know what you mean about taking lots of time to get the spacing and placement right. Yesterday's card was so quick, and today's cards took forever.

Sweet card...love the dimension with the impression plate. I can totally appreciate the time you put into this card lining everything up. Well worth your effort, looks great!

Lovely! I love how you used the negative from the dies and backed them with colour!

Carol, this is so lovely and sweet. I love how you did the hearts too and on the embossed white paper too, so beautiful.

Carol, I love the colors you chose and the hearts! The canvas/linen impression plate adds a touch of extra detail! Beautiful card!

I love this! i was actually planning a third submission for this challenge with a diagonal line of hearts. You have proven that it was good idea! : )
