Allsorts Challenge #686

 The theme for the latest Allsorts Challenge is **Summer** and I know that so far this year we've had lots of sunshine and record high temperatures but in the past Summer has often been about sunshine and showers so I thought that my card would fit the bill.  It came about because I was sorting out some of the 'saved' bits and pieces on my desk and I pulled out a little collection of coloured arcs which were cut in all the colours for a previous rainbow project.  As is often the case I ended up with far too many but actually when I sorted through them I only had sufficient to built one more rainbow in the correct colour sequence.  I sorted out some other stamps and dies along with pieces of card to put this together as a 'get well' card. I was tempted to keep the rest of the rainbow bits 'just in case' but made myself discard them - brave move on my part I thought as I'm a serious hoarder🤣.

  1. This is a charming creation with the combo of the rainbow and those cute checkered wellies filled with flowers! I too have to force myself to discard snippets - I guess it's hard to change old habits of saving for another day!

  2. Perfect combination of pretty elements for this get well card xxx

  3. Very sweet card. Love the boots filled with flowers. Thank you for sharing your project at Allsorts "Summer' challenge.

  4. I had to smile when I saw this beautiful card. After our record temps of last week, this week has started overcast cooler and the odd shower. Just in time for the school holidays.
