Card for a couple of challenges

This past weekend was VERY busy! (hence the lack of activity on the blog so far this week) I only managed to create two cards and one page (which I can't show yet). And unfortunately, the photos leave a little to be desired too. BUT I took a photography class last night (and didn't get home until after midnight) so hopefully my photography skills will benefit from that!

Anyway, this card is for the Coredinations and Clearsnap color challenges. I just loved the clearsnap colors - green, blue and purple. And the coredinations challenge was to use part or all of the rainbow, and green blue and purple are the tail end of the rainbow.

Oh yes, I am getting WELL acquainted with the rainbow since Ellie is having a rainbow birthday party. I wish I had a little more time (and a little more coredinations cardstock) because I have a ton of FULL rainbow ideas rolling around in my head. But don't worry, you will all be seeing them sometime soon. At least, as soon as I come up for air! lol! I won't bore you with the details but suffice it to say that I must have walked out the front door of my house to run an errand at least 10 times this weekend. It was to the point where I was laughing. Grabbing my keys and running to the next appointment was like deja vu!

Ok and also the newest Cards blog challenge gallery topic was announced - use three border punches. So I alternated the punched strips, and also alternated sanding the wonderful coredinations cardstock, to give a subtle differentiation between the strips.

Coredinations cardstock, Clearsnap inks, MME stamps, SRM stickers sticker, Fiskars and Martha Stewart punches, the twinery twine.
