Welcome to another wonderful Wednesday at 365 Cards!
Okay I admit I was only 4 years old when the Muppet Movie came out, but I clearly remember Kermit singing this song and I think it's been one of my favorite songs since then. I even have the Hawaiian version of this song on my iPod (you can listen to it here with a slide show of Hawaiian rainbows...that's for you, mom!) So I was SUPER excited that I got to pick the song-inspired challenge from last June using this song...I mean how bad could a "twist" be?!? Well, Pam threw me for a loop on this one...be inspired by a song about rainbows but don't have any rainbows on the card!!! UGH!!!
Well, after a bit of research that included watching multiple versions of this song (here's the original one from the movie!), reading the lyrics multiple times and reading some interesting trivia about the song, I was still stumped! So when I couldn't get anything from the lyrics or trivia, I went back to where it all started...with Kermit!!! Well, I have no Kermit stamps but I did have this super cute frog on a lily pad digi from Doodle Pantry and he reminded me of Kermit singing in the swamp.
Then I got the idea of the use of the gorgeous SRM Stickers from a while ago when they had a toot on making "newsprint flowers". I just didn't punch out flowers! ;) I wish I'd sized the image a little smaller so you could see more of the stickers, but lesson learned for next time! Most of the stickers I used came from the Thinking of You pack which I also thought went well with this Rainbow Connection song-inspired card! I used one more sticker for the sentiment on the inside:
Well, I hope you like my Rainbow Connection inspired without a rainbow card! Here's some other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. Alphabet Challenge Blog - G for Green
2. CardPatterns - sketch
3. Diva Coffee Break Designs - gable green, bashful blue, pixie pink: I added a bit of so saffron too!
4. Pollycraft Monday Challenge - let's have a sing song
5. Speedy the Cat’s Friends at Mark’s Finest Papers - make your own background paper
Thanks for stopping by and can't wait to see your "inspired" cards!
