BBB23 The Beauty of a Rainbow

 Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet -- combine all and you have the colours of the rainbow! For this challenge -- show us how you can combine at least three of those hues to celebrate The Beauty of a Rainbow on your card or creation! Link up your Bring Back Beautiful Challenge creations on the Flourishes Blog to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB23. You have until June 30 to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we'll share our True Beauties, those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog! Our FAVOURITE entry this month will also be asked if they would like to join the team for the August Challenge!
 
 I've started with a base of Pumpkin Pie cut with Labels 23.  Next is a layer of Howdy Doody DP that has a piece of White Crochet Lace and green satin ribbon wrapped around it.  Next I created a panel of white cut with Floral Oval Nestabilities and layered with more Howdy Doody DP cut with Small Oval Nestabilities.  I've stamped the sentiment from Orchids in black directly onto the DP and stamped the bucket of tulips from April Showers in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics - Daffodil Collection, Burnt Orange Collection, Pistachio Collection and Cool Neutrals Collection.  It's then been cut out and popped up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a couple of pearl flourishes to the corners and a green bow to the ribbon.

Stamps - April Showers, Orchids (Flourishes)
Paper - Pumpkin Pie, White, Howdy Doody DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Labels 23, Large Rectangle, Floral Oval and Small Oval Nestabilities, White Crochet Lace, Green Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy,  Pearl Flourishes, Scissors, Foam Tape.

Kathy, this is so beautiful again with these bright (?) colors! I love the way you make your card and it gives me a lot of inspirations. Thank you so much! I want to make more cards with flowers and not only cute stamps.

Simply gorgeous, Kathy! So rich in color and design. Looks like you've cut back a bit on your design work. Every one of your Flourishes cards is a work of art. So beautiful!

This is such a gorgeous card Kathy! I adore all of your cards and your Copic colouring is amazing! I've chosen this card to CASE for the Our Daily Bread Designs challenge this week. I'm not sure I "lived" up to your standard of work - but I gave it my best shot! :-)
