Count Your Rainbows...

Well as promised I'm back with this week's Sentimental Sundays challenge which is "Buttons, Brads &/or Bling" (+ a sentiment).  This week are Sami Stamps & I used Umbrella Splash.  I paper pieced most of the image & added a brad to the umbrella.  I cut an aperture in my card with a circle die &  added some rainbow paper behind.  I finished off with a stamped sentiment & buttons.

The challenges:
Crafty Boots - Spring
Crafty Creations - Chevrons or Stripes
Time Out - Clean and Simple
Crafts 4 Eternity - Pastel Shades
QKR Stampede - Think Spring
Inky Impressions - Pastel Colours
{PIN}spirational - Spring Photo Inspiration 
Simon Says - Spring Pinterest Inspiration 
Going Grey with Scrap-Creations - Pastels
Little Claire - Springtime

I hope you're all having a nice weekend. My week ended horribly (with a visit to the dentist for a crown fitting & 2 filling in wisdom teeth & my cheek is still sore from the injections) so I was glad to have 2 days to recover.  Managed to do a bit of crafting which always helps me feel better :o) & this afternoon it will be watching tv with hubby & drinking tea :D  Hopefully the working week won't come around too quickly.

This is such a sweet design and love the sentiment. You've coloured your image so well too and the rainbow paper is gorgeous. Hope you've recovered from your dentist visit, not my favourite place at all, so don't envy you. Painful physically and for the bank account!! So glad you joined us at TIME OUT!

This really is so pretty and your coordinating inside DP is perfect! Hope you are better - not fond of dentist visits myself either so I feel for you.
