Welcome! It’s the last week of our Somewhere over the Rainbow theme. So, I started singing the song in my head and thinking about what you find over the rainbow, and came up with birds, melting troubles, and daring dreams.
Incorporating the bird was easy with our 2-step Bird punch, and Word Play’s “Wish Big” was a natural for daring to dream. The troubles melting like lemon drops was a little more difficult, and I’m still not completely pleased with them, but I procrastinated too long to have time to tweak it anymore! :)
Soooo… Here’s what I used: I used the Small Oval Punch and the Calendar Alphabet and Numbers stamp set to make a row of lemon drops spelling out “troubles,” and I used the rain drops stamp from “My Friend” to show them melting away.
I’m still not completely happy with this, and I think I would like it better if I’d used a different color ribbon. Maybe an orange or a red. Didn’t have those colors on hand, though, so white it is!
