FCCB Challenge #61: Blue Skies

Ahhhh I didn't intend for this card to be so dreary but I went with it!  I had started with the clouds and was going with a dream sorta theme to go with my blue skies but this turned into a card that might work for someone who's having a rough go at life or such.  I hope you can join us at FCCB! for our Fantabulous "Blue Skies" challenge.  Go ahead and make a project with the color blue and a cloud shape--using atleast one cricut cut! I can't wait to see what you create :)    I do love how the rainbow effect came through on the little cloud over the word rainbow-- love it!  Thanks for stopping by!

Sarah I think your card is great. Sometimes, sadly, we need a card that isn't all happy and cheerful. Your card is great for someone who may be having a tough time and just needs a reminder that somewhere under all those clouds...a rainbow awaits! Love it!

This is fabulous! I LOVE that little rainbow in the cloud. The splash of colour really draws focus to the sentiment - and speaks volumes.

I think it's a great encouragement card and sometimes that's the hardest card to create! I love this idea with the sentiment and will probably lift it! ;) ( FCCB DT )
