Happy Valentine's Day everyone!  Today I have a love-themed card to share using a couple of older The Alley Way Stamps stamp sets.  I adore the rainbow coloured cards that seem to be all over blogland at the moment, and so I thought I'd have a go too! 

I started off by trimming six 6mm strips of different coloured cardstock and adhered them at an angle to a 105x148mm piece of Coconut Swirl cardstock.  I made sure that I cut the strips longer than width of the panel, so that once I glued them down, I could easily snip off the ends to line up the edges.   I added a die cut stitched border to a 79x122mm panel of white card using the plain stitch border die from my Whimsy Stamps Stitched Border Trio die set.  I then stamped the cloud from get MOOvin' in grey ink onto a scrap of white card and fussy cut it out. I used the stitch die again to cut 6 staggered stitched lines underneath the cloud and then popped rainbow coloured sequins at the ends.  I decided to swap out the pink sequin for a pink die-cut heart as I thought it went well with the sweet sentiment from the Lighter than Air stamp set.

I would like to enter this card into the current CASology challenge #133: Love.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Valentine's Day!
