You Are My Sunshine and My Rainbows

Hello, Friends!  We've had some rain lately and this card is so appropriate because sunshine is predicted for tomorrow.  Today's card uses a DTP technique using oil pastels.  I love the richness of the colors.  It was hard to pull it out of my dp stash, but I knew when I saw this Back to Paper digital image that a vibrant background was just what it needed.  The sentiment is from Verve and I just love the tone it sets.  This card is image #2 in the CDAC Progressive Challenge--required image-- and will also be entered at Crafty Boots--rainbows. I will also enter it into these challenges:  Make it Monday - W - always Anything GoesOoh La La Creations - 2W, SIO - (2nd week) Inspired by Nature;  Stamp and Create - M, 1E/week - (June) Summer Fun;  Tammy's Scrapin Corner - W, 2E, F - Anything Goes + Texture;  Use Your Stuff - W, JFF, use your stash - Summer-inspired;  Without Words - M, P10, 3E, CAS, hand-colored image - (June) Hot Colours;  Fitztown Challenge - W, F -  Anything Goes;  Crafty Bloggers Network - MSIO - (June) Bright & Breezy;  Word Art Wednesday--Anything inspirational Goes; Alota Rubber Stamps--Summer Feeling.
