Chasing Rainbows

Mornin' y'all, how are you doing?  I got in my craft room yesterday for the first time in weeks and made this:

I used the sketch from Retro Rubber:

The only stamping on my card is the greeting; otherwise the retro DSP does all the work.  The stamp set Rain or Shine is 11 years old, so quite retro ; ) and the Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP is an old favorite.

I took my theme from the Paper Players challenge:

I hunted up the Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP specifically for the rainbow stripes, and I had a scrap of the umbrella print that I couldn't resist using for the center shape on the sketch.  Then I had to add a die-cut sun from the soon-to-retire Hey Chuck dies, so I hit both sunshine and rainbows on my card.  I kept it pretty simple since I hadn't been in my craft room for so long.  I did sneak in the new-to-me Countryside Corners dies too.

Have a great day, peeps.  Cheers!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Rain or Shine
Ink:  Pacific Point
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Thick Basic White, Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP

Great take on the sketch Christy, I love the umbrella paper, the addition of the sun ties it all so nicely to your sentiment. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT
