Searching for Rainbows

Never stop searching for rainbows or chasing your dreams.

I found this sentiment and thought it was perfect for the card I was making.  It’s supposed to be rainy and windy today, great day to spend indoors and get a few cards made before the kids come over.  It’s going to be a typical spring day and we really do need the rain so hopefully we get to see a rainbow or two today!

Inspiration: Tiddly Inks, I used the rainbow of colors and the umbrella as inspiration.  I noticed the hues were more subtle so I tried to choose less vibrant colors for the rainbow.

My second inspiration came from this week’s Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, my boss collects frogs so now whenever I see a frog I think of her.  It’s her birthday in a few weeks so of course I have to include a frog somewhere on the card!
