Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #99: Repeats & Rainbows

Hello everyone!  Hope all is well with you.  I just wanted to share a card I made for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge.  The challenge was to use one of the six color schemes provided by Nichole Heady and create a repeating stamped or die cut pattern using the rainbow of colors.  Here is what I came up with.  Hope you like it!
I selected Color Scheme No. 2 for my project.





This project was a lot of fun and took me out of my comfort zone a little bit.  I enjoyed the challenge and will probably refer back to the color schemes for future projects.  It took the guess work out of the equation for me as far as colors which is sometimes my hardest decision to make!!  I didn't take a picture of the inside of the card but I just embossed the sentiment from the Heart-2-Heart #6 set that says "I hope brighter skies come your way soon!"

Thanks for stopping by!
