A Kat Scrappiness Hello!

 It's November and a new challenge is here. 

Our sponsor is this month is Kat Scrappiness, (KS) and they are offering a Kat Scrappiness gift package worth $100!  Unfortunately, due to high shipping cost, this prize could only be awarded to a winner (randomly selected) with a valid U.S. address.

(any holiday)

I'm not sure of how many of us send out Thanksgiving cards, but I definitely will be sending out at least one card.  It's pretty simple, but I really like how it came together.  A rainbow doesn't have to be the normal rainbow colors.  My rainbow happens to be Autumn colors.  You might make a Christmas rainbow. My next card has a Christmas rainbow.  Read on.

Card ONE

Card TWO Shaker Card with a Christmas Rainbow
Every single die, paper and enamel dot used on this card is from Kat Scrappiness.

This is a shiny, sparkly card, almost every inch covered with clear Wink of Stella.  I was squeezing every wink out of the Wink of Stella, so it is super sparkly.  I used Copic markers to color the rainbow and sentiment.  I had left-over cuts from a film strip die which I then die-cut with a smaller square die so I could layer the die cut to make a shaker card.  I used a clear top from a take home meal and covered the top with a last layer of paper to make the shaker part.
