MFTGUESTDT0213 The Rainbow Will Come

Hi all!  Happy Thursday! I have a super fun card today -- it's my entry into MFT's Guest DT contest for  February.  It was a great sketch and worked perfectly with the a la modes - The Rainbow Will Come.

There are some colors I just love putting together.  Purple and green seem to be two of them.  I'm not sure I'd ever do this with my actual clothes, but I love this result.  Cosmo Cricket Pixie-Licious papers were my choice to paper piece her umbrella, coat and boots.  I matched them up with cardstock from MFT -- Grape Jelly and Sour Apple -- I think!  I'm still working through my sampler pack and had a hard time figuring out the greens between my computer screen and the actual paper.  I could rule out some easily enough, like the yummy Spearmint.

Miss  a la Mode (I need to come up with a name for her!) is standing in a sparkly puddle of Holo Iridescent Glitter Liner.  The sentiment is stamped in single words on a Mix & Match Banner.  A trio of twine and a bow completed that tab.
 She's so cute! I really do love these colors together!

I had to finish the inside of my card off.  Since I was using "The Rainbow Will Come" sentiment, I wanted to include a rainbow.  So I cut a rainbow from the Pixie-Licious papers with my Rainbow die-namic and added in the other sentiment.  To maximize my cardstock usage, I cut my scalloped circle from the green mat and then covered it with the Cryogen.
