CAS(E) this Sketch 124...Love You

I can't escape rainbows...I make no excuses...I love them...they make me happy!!  I had the thought to simply use 3 thin stitched strips, but my card for CAS(E) this Sketch 124 kind of evolved to include a thick middle strip filled with a rainbow of hearts...

 I tried and tried to put a sentiment (MANY sentiments) over the strips...just couldn't make it look right, but that bottom corner looked just right to me with a little Simon Says Stamp sentiment:)!

 I made this as I usually do...by die cutting 7 hearts in thin card stock, positioning and lightly adhering to the wide strip, and THEN die cutting each heart.

 I then turned it over, put pop up squares and 1/2 squares up and down the strip, using them to give lift to the panel and also to adhere the little pieces of rainbow colored card stock I put behind each heart window.  You notice there is print on my paper...it's a piece of scrap, so it was "used" on the back...It's RARE when I use an "unused" piece of cardstock for anything but an actual card. I cut all the tops and bottoms of the strips at an angle, too.  Here's the back...
Ok...I had so much fun making this card!!  Although on both my entries for this challenge, I used "creative license" in interpreting the sketch, I had so much fun with #124:)!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  1. I am totally with you regarding rainbow colours. Why restrict yourself to a few colours, when you can use them all? I am convinced they release serotonin in my brain -- the happy hormone. I think your card is just perfect!
