Raise the Weather Bar!

Woohoo! We made it through the week and yes, even though the kids were on Spring Break, no one knows how to sleep in here at the Wilson household. ;)
It's a fabulous Friday and a new challenge over at Raise The Bar!
We had so much fun last week, please come on over and join us in this week's challenge:

April Showers

Create a card using any type of weather inspiration: rain, snow, sunshine, clouds, you name it!
It can be anything from an image, designer papers, decorative ribbon, let's see what you have. :D
For my card, I was inspired by a little tutorial from a magazine that had ribbon stitched together. Brilliant use of scraps! Here is my rainbow card that I came up with:


I used short pieces of ribbon to create a little rainbow. That awesome DP was a small scrap in my stash that worked with my color palette. I come from the land of rainbows so this card makes me very happy!
Here is a closer peek with the stitching:


I purposely left it without a sentiment. This way my mom can send it out for a Get Well, Happy Birthday, or Thinking of You occasion and hopefully it will brighten someone's day!
Here are a couple more challenges that I incorporated:
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes
Sisterhood of the Scraps: Use up the scraps! 
Thank you for coming by everyone! Tomorrow is a special Easter Hop with DCRU so please pop by and say hello. :D Have a wonderful day!
*Love and Aloha*
