Somewhere over the Rainbow - Scrapology October Challenge

For October we were delighted that Steph Devlin agreed for us to scraplift her beautiful rainbow layout, this is my version using our monthly kit in conjunction with Cardinal Colours - contact us for more details.

I edged the white bazzill with a Martha Stewart Around the page punch - pansy - and mounted onto the black which was gutted to 1"
I then punched an edge with the same punch and cut it so it was just wider than my 6x4" photograph.

I have a multitude of flower punches so set to work with the various colours of the rainbow, which I learned from Lynn was Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vein' as a means of remembering the colours and their order for a rainbow (red, orange yellow green blue indigo and violet), not singing red and yellow and pink and green etc! - how silly did I feel??
Anyhow, the Violet appealed the most so took prominence in the centre.

Once I was happy with the placement, they were stuck down together with various pieces of ribbon and punched leaves and fronds. I added buttons and pearls to the centres.

My title is letters from My Little Shoebox and Quickutz Ginger alphabet.
All are outlined with a black micron pen.

This is Steph's original page and our sketch.

Check-out the challenge on the Scrapology blog and see the beautiful pages created by the DT.

Thanks for looking :)
