There is just something so bright and cheerful about a rainbow of colors all in one place.  I found this photo of scattered wooden blocks especially inspiring and thought it was a wonderful jumping point for a card!  You can stamp scattered images on a card front.  Use the colors to create stripes or backgrounds.  Die cut multiples of similar shapes in a rainbow of colors and adhere them in a unique pattern.  Splatter several colors of ink or paint onto your project.  Get creative and have fun with all of the options at your fingertips!

Victoria H

Victoria H. designed this fun cheers card with a rainbow of wine bottles, a great interpretation of the inspiration photo.  The strip of gold is such a nice touch and helps to ground everything.

 

Terri

Terry Weigand used the Cover Plate: Mighty Bloom to create this colorful card.  All of those colors together just make you happy!  The simple white card base lets the design take center stage.

Steffi H. created this gorgeous watercolor background using a whole rainbow of colors.  The addition of the bold birthday sentiment really makes a statement.
