Gallery Idol Round Two! Confetti Rainbow!

Hello!  I am so excited to be here today with my card for Paper Crafts Gallery Idol round Two!  I am still in awe to be part of this competition!  The challenge was Color Your World!  Right away as a mom to young kids a Rainbow came to mind!  I thought and thought and thought and the idea of using confetti came to me!  I've seen and read that confetti is a huge trend right now and thought it would be so fun to use that for my card! I thought it would be something different too! And that is how I came up with my card!  





I used a school supply, a three whole punch to make my confetti!  I simply punched over and over Bazzill cardstock and made piles!  Than I made a small pool of glue from my Tombow glue and used a q-tip to add the glue to the back of each confetti! I stamped the sentiment from Papertrey Ink first, I love this sentiment I really think it pairs well with a rainbow!  I than worked from the purple and up placing the confetti where I thought it should go first than gluing them each down!  Added three rhinestones  and adhered to the white card with dimensional adhesive!

Supplies used:  

Cardstock:  Bazzill
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink Fillable Frames 3
Ink:  Black by Stampin UP
Rhinestons:  Hero Arts
Adhesive:  tombow, scrapbook adhesives (dimensional)  

I really hope that you like my card!  I really loved and enjoyed making it!!!!!  I would love it if you voted for me!

I truly think each and every of the 20 cards are amazing!  I am so honored to be part of this with such talented ladies!   This weekend I've been a bit stressed and nervous but I told myself all that I can do is try my best and I think I have.  I hope that you love my card as much as I do and take the time to cast your vote for me!  I would simply love it to make it to the Top 15!

Thank you so much!!!!!!!

I love it!!! The dots are great!

Oh, wow! At first glance I thought you stamped it, which would have been hard enough, but you glued every single dot? You crazy (like a fox) woman! Definitely winning material, in my humble opinion!

Really fun, and so cool that you didn't need a fancy paper crafting gadget to make the dots! A hole punch worked perfectly!
