I am a real rainbow fan. For as long as I can remember, I’ve put things into rainbow order. Pens, crayons, pencils, clothes, paperclips. Anything. My Mum would have me sort through her embroidery threads. I think she secretly knew that when I was finished, she’d have a perfect rainbow of them!

And nothing changes even with age.

A rainbow is a beautiful thing to see in the sky, but to a Christian, it’s a reminder that things will never be so desperate again. That there always is hope.

My card today uses the Over the Rainbow stamp set for the sentiment, then a scatter of Gorgeous Grunge behind those stunning Regals Collection Bitty Butterflies.

A great way to use up scraps too, as well as to remind you of hope.

  1. I like rainbows too but I always think of the order we learned in school: ROY G BIV :-). I especially like this card because my favorite Christian symbol of hope is the butterfly. (Have you ever read Hope for the Flowers?)

  2. Sharon Diane says:

    WOW! LOVE THIS CARD! Two of my favorite things–butterflies and rainbows. Seriously, this is stunning. Thank you for sharing your beautiful creations with all of us.

  3. Cheryl Brane says:

    Beautiful card. I’m going to see if I have the colors.

  4. Dianne Roper says:

    I LOVE your card but I also loved YOUR comments about the rainbow. I am casing this card to send to a dear friend who is battling cancer– thank you, Pootles!!❤️❤️❤️

  5. Very pretty. Love the sentiment.

  6. Edna Dawe says:

    Thank you for this beautiful card and your thoughts about rainbows and butterflies. So inspiring. I look forward to opening my computer every morning and receiving your e-mails with all your challenging ideas for cards, etc.

  7. Beautiful card … I too love rainbows and butterflies and use them often in my cards and scrap pages. Thank you for sharing your creativity – and your Christianity. May God bless you and your family.

    You are excellent at crafting boxes, milk cartons and all kinds of other containers, which I really, really enjoy, but I have to say, I am blown away by this card. I can’t wait to make one…it is elegant, and really speaks to the heart. My cousins wife passed away on their 50th wedding anniversary, he really needs this card…but for him, I might leave the pearls off, have to think on it a minute.

  9. This is such a beautiful card and thank you so much for posting about the true meaning of the rainbow! Sharon, I think this card will be beautiful and full of meaning with or without the pearls.

  10. This is just gorgeous! I am the same, but I have a daughter on the Autism Spectrum who beats me to it these days… win/win I say Thank you for your inspiration! Lisa from Sydney Australia xoxo
