Sometimes we need to create our own rainbows...

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick post today - I wanted to share with you my latest project that I made for the Sparkle and Shine challenge. As I looked at the inspiration photo, all I could think of was a sequin umbrella - and so I gave it a go!

I felt like I was channeling my inner Paulina Nakamura from Pretty Pink Posh (she used to make lovely cards of a similar type, using her fabulous sequins!). Unfortunately, I don't own enough of Paulina's sequins to be able to create a rainbow, so I had to use my cheap and cheerful sequins instead :o) Still, the result is not the worst, I think!

I cut the umbrella by hand, just like I recently did with the shamrock here. For the doodled boarders, I used an old Papermania stamp set. I also wanted to use the "Sometimes we need to create our own rainbows" sentiment on the card (which I thought would be very fitting), but in the end I decided that it simply didn't fit on the front, so I printed the sentiment inside the card instead.

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Sparkle and Shine - Photo Inspiration
QKR Stampede - Spring has sprung

I hope you like my little sequin-crazy creation. Have a great weekend!



  1. Very creative! Would never have thought of sequins to make this darling umbrella! And what a great reminder that spring days are here too! Thanks for joining us this week at QKR Stampede for the weekly challenge!

  2. WOW! This must have taken forever lol. but so worth it for the effect!
