Wanna take a look at my card?  I used the new set of cloud dies and they go perfectly with the PS rainbow die!  For my card, I created an inlaid die cut rainbow and then I reverse cut the clouds to make a shaker card.  

The shaker clouds are filled with these little acrylic gems that I found online.  I'm a sucker for sparkly;)


Now it's time for you to hop on over to the next stop on the hop, the amazing Jocelyn Olson!   

Mahalo,
