CASE Study Challenge #84

This is the last week with CASE Study Challenge muse Laura Bassen and I can't pass up one last time to play along!  Laura's style is really impeccable and she makes it seem so effortless (which I'm sure it's totally not).  If you haven't already visited her blog, definitely check it out!  Here's her awesome inspiration card for CASE Study Challenge #84...
Recently I ordered from My Favorite Things for the first time and I finally got a few things that have been on my wish list for forever!  I know there are other rainbow dies out there, but I like the scale of this die and I *love* the fact that there are 7 colors in this rainbow:)  I'm from Hawai'i and you know we take our rainbows seriously, heehee!  
I cut the rainbow in blush pink, coral pink, hot pink, and red.  If you look really close, you can see that the cut "rainbows" are flush with the red background.  With so much color going on, I thought the extra layer would be distracting.  I finished it off with a clean and simple sentiment from My Cute Stamps.    
That's it for me tonight!  Thanks so much for stopping in and I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!  
{Aloha, jj}
