Choo choo!

Hello!

Sometimes I start making a card with a particular idea almost fully formed, other times the card just seems to make itself. This card is an example of the latter. Not quite what I had in mind, but still cute. ;-)
I used PTI Little Hot Rod stamps and dies. Colours are SU! Cameo Coral (I didn't have anything like Melon Berry), Pool Party, Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, Daffodil Delight, and Memento London Fog for the sentiments. Card base is PTI Basic White.

This is in response to two challenges. Make it Monday #99 calls for us to use rainbows and repeats. My repeats are the clouds. The rainbow scheme I chose was colour scheme #2.
CASE Study this month has the amazing Amber Kemp-Gerstel as muse, and the first card for CASE Study #123 is one of my many favourites of hers.
I really did mean to CASE this more closely, but I ended up focusing on the creation of movement through the use of repeated images.

Thanks for coming by!
