You made my day

Have you seen my Lil' Inker Designs kick off blog hop post yet? If not scoot on by there and leave a comment as there are prizes to be had!

I'm here today to share a Lil' Inker Designs card I made the other day. While thinking about LIDs new rainbows and clouds dies and stamps I was transported back to our recent holiday in California. While walking the 'Mist Trail' in Yosemite rainbows were everywhere as the sun hit the mist kicked up from the raging waterfalls. The rainbows played hide and seek through the trees as we climbed higher and higher up the trail. So here's my card today inspired by our holiday.


I used the larger cloud die for the tree tops and the smaller cloud die for, well, the clouds! I stamped the tree tops with branches and leaves to add a bit of detail.


I'm going to enter this card into the sketch challenge for WMSC59. Here's the sketch.


I hope you can see how I was inspired from the sketch - the rainbow coming in from one side and the line of the trees from the other.

Was trying to figure out where the WMS stamps were in this card, and then I found them, well done.... and the grass is a great touch.

Such a clever idea to use cloud die cuts for your trees, and the WMS tree images look wonderful as your truck/branches. Fabulous creation for the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge. Thanks for playing along.
