Happy New Year folks, lets hope its a wonderful 2018 for one and all.

I decided to start the crafting year off with a ray of sunshine and a happy rainbow.  It was super easy to create, the only time consuming part was finding the right coloured card in my off-cuts box while reciting 'Richard of York gave battle in vain' to remind myself of the colours I was searching for!

Everything has been die cut out and arranged onto the card base.  The 'smile' die was cut out three times to give it more dimension and the clear gems were coloured with a light blue Sharpie just to give the impression of a lil rain.  The rainbow, sunshine and 'smile' dies are all brand new.
