NON "Over the Rainbow" Challenge + DT Call!

Hi everyone! This is such an excited month at Naughty or Nice Challenges!

It's spring! The trees and flowers are coming to life and it's time to open the windows to enjoy the breeze!  Along with warmer weather comes rainy weather (and allergies!) and if we're lucky....rainbows, which brings us to our new challenge.  For the month of April, we want to see what you can create when you're inspired by rainbows.  In addition to this fun theme, we are also having a design team call (YAY!!), so if you've dreamed of being one of the troublemakers and can commit to a deadline with one or two cards a month, if you can have fun without drama, and can meet a few other easy requirements, please join us in this month's challenge by linking your card up on the NON blog and add "DT" after your name :) We're a fun group of ladies and are excited to have new members :)

I made this card for the wedding of two of my friends and they were so happy with it :)  I used my Silhouette to weld the hands of the two women together and used the negative space as the focal point. I wanted to add some depth to the card so I trimmed the white layer so that the silhouettes would be in the corner and adhered it to a foam sheet before adding it to the card base. The rainbow hearts were made with a stencil. embossing paste and Distress Inks, which can be fun, but it's so very messy! Clean up as you go to make it easier on yourself :)

Don't forget to stop by the blog to see what my teammates came up with and submit your entry! You have until April 25...and don't forget to add "DT" after your name if you'd love to join the team!
