Polkadoodles #25: Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Hello friends! Can you believe it's Friday already. The last time I did some proper carting was ... eerr... sometime last week! SO much to do, so little time but I managed to make this quick card for our mid-challenge inspiration over Polkadoodles.

The theme of our on-going challenge is "Somewhere Over The Rainbow". You don't have to include a rainbow in your project, you can if you want to but why not think outside the box and let your imagination soar.

Here's my take on the theme - a patchwork rainbow background for that summer in the country look. I was inspired by the song San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers in Your Hair) by Scott McKenzie...

The background papers are from the bumper Sugar Birdies Collection.  For embellishments,
I used flowers from Bonbon Belles and I finished the project with a few pink & blue blings. 

The sentiment is also form the Bonbon Belles CD.

The image is a pre-coloured digi called Anya from the Fredericka Mini Collection.
I fussy cut her and popped her up on foam tape. LOVE the way her hair is flying 
in the wind.... 

Here's the inside. Clearly Anya isn't just sitting about and thinking of you 
for no good reason. :-)

A few challenges for this card:
